He's a 4th liner. A third line player can accept a pass in his skates or one that is slightly off the mark. He cannot. he is a grinder/pk specialist who can drop the gloves. A very good 4th liner and the contract we offerered is good for that role. If he wants to be paid like a third line player he will need to go elsewhere because we know he is not that. Shame.
