A player like Nic will always take some heat due to his sloth-like style. You have to put top 6 linemates with him or he will become a liability in the lineup and on the salary cap.

IF the Jets can manage to get 15-20 g's and 50+ pts out of him in a 2nd line role until the end of his contract (Jul 2013), then paying him 4.5 mil/yr won't feel as bad.

That said, I'm betting that in 2 years when his contract is up, so will be his time in Winnipeg and the NHL.
