That is why I believe he will 100% be here next year. I don't see any reason he won't be here
  1. He's young
  2. He's cheap (near league minimum)
  3. He's NHL-ready
  4. He's a serviceable bottom six forward that plays physical and tough
  5. He eats 10-15 minutes a game without being a liability

Yes, he isn't a top goal scorer or a dynamic playmaker but his probable 700k/yr contract isn't paid for goals. That's what Mikko Koivu's 6.75mil and Heatley's 7.5mil contracts are for
