I guess I'm at the point I think Bates has no business being on this teams top three lines and only should take some faceoffs and play on the fourth lines, too many kids with good potential he's standing in the way of for the next three years. He's not physical, goes into huge scoring slumps.

I was really hoping he we not be back, somehow he get's a three year contract for not producing. I know he closed the doors and let the team have it recently and no doubt is seen as a leader in his own way but the overall production does not merit this kind of contract.
