Unfortunately he is making a ton of money compared to other producers on this team..if his salary was bumped down to even 4-4.5 then he's totally worth it. But he and Briere have the highest cap hit and Briere's clutch in the playoffs, but hardly justified it in the reg season and Kimmo seems to be wearing down from over usage. Tho I will always love him because he's been a rock for us and was overlooked and underrated while Pronger was here. With respect to the quote, I'm sure he just meant that because he knows he won't be around for long and the core of this team is so young that they will be great for years to come if they can stay together.
