With inflation his contract may be cheap a few years from now, but to me he is overpaid to be a checking center. Lets roll Beagle instead and suffer through the 10 less goals somehow. Getting someone with better faceoff numbers should help that a bit.
I'd do that...yesterday, but odds are low, IMO. I think Laich is the kind of player a young team might be interested in giving up a good prospect for.. but if you're talking about a good top-6 player, I doubt Laich can be the best player in a package.
