His value will never be as high as it is now...i'm not knocking him, I just don't think teams will be beating down the Habs door in 2 years to acquire a small, 2 way center making 5M per year for another 3-4 years for 40-50pts a year

Habs have to decide if they want too remain mediocre, or maybe take a step back to take 2 forward
