I'm not sure how 54 regular season pts translate into 'won't help us in the regular season'. That's pretty impressive for a 40-year old.
Even if they take him off the first line, he can still contribute on and off the ice.
But I agree, that his salary needs to drop because he will probably miss more games next year as his body continues wearing down and we are close to the cap (as always). Why not offer him a perfomance related bonus?
