No thanks.

If they're trading for a center, it has to be a hardcore third line shutdown guy like Manny Malholtra, who isn't available, but that type of player. I'd be more receptive if he was closer to $1M. $3M is crazy though. I can't justify him being paid less than $1M less than Giroux for another two years.
Meh. I guess my opinion of him is a bit higher. For $3 million, I'll take what he brings to the table. Just out of curiosity, what should he be making in your opinion, and what type of player should be making the money he is making?
