In essence, I agree with you...the Habs shouldnt have to be paying this type of player 2.5M per year, over the next 4 years. (though it's not really a crippling deal in the first place)
I question the need for this type of player on the roster period, frankly. (Again, I like him personally and will enjoy the entertainment that he'll provide with White, Armstrong and Moen, but I don't see him as a necessary component to a winning franchise)
