Just an absolute detriment to icing a competitive roster.
I'm not suggesting he is at this point -- simply that he's capable of earning it. He's been in one of the worst situations for his skillset since coming to Toronto, and that's probably going to change with a new coach and bigger group of forwards.

You don't need to handle the puck to earn $4.5m in this league.... that's not physical dmen earn their keep... and on a team that will have one Gardiner/Liles paired with him, it really doesn't matter.

On a side note,

Team's shouldn't be looking to shore up depth with UFAs (imo). 9/10 UFAs are overpayed so I'd rather have an overpayed star than an overpayed depth player.
No. They're open market fair value. They're only considered overpaid in relation to players who sign as RFAs or give discounts to be in a certain place, reflective of course of the fact that it requires assets to get underpaid players.
