If he's your top 6 W, you're paying 4.5 million for a top 6 W who sucks at forechecking, working the boards, is below average at generating and average at finishing offensive plays, and is still worse than Troy Brouwer at working the net despite it being his bread and bakery. But at least he can glare at people and be good/canadian/boy. A capable filler top 6 W if put with great linemates, sure, but for 4.5 you want a bit more than that.

No matter where he is on the team he is significantly overpaid for what he brings.
If you're pissed about 41 points for $4.5 million...you must really be pissed about 54 points and $6.7 million.
