Wouldn't mind him back if he took a pay cut, but he needs to be better during the regular season and perform as he has during these playoffs. Not having him play out of his position like Terry Murray had him doing (playing RW for parts of the season) will surely help him.

He's one of the more physical players on the team, which unfortunately results in some untimely minor penalties. If he can clean up some parts of his game, he'd be a lot more effective. He's been a huge part of the PK unit and the checking line has really come up big at times with some dominant puck containing shifts.

A three to four year deal paying him $3M per year seems fair. When he was paid $3.6M he was expected to be a #2 C, which he clearly isn't.
