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.
It wouldn't matter if he never had to handle the puck. He'll **** up every little opportunity he gets, just watch. He'll be out of this league as quickly as Mike Commodore (a year after the contract he cashed in on is over).
Ps, physical d-men don't earn their keep putting their team a man down as a result of taking dumb penalties when the game isn't even being played (post whistle), and for 4.5M you'd think your physical d-man had more than just one attribute. Just being physical doesn't make you an NHL caliber player. If that were true every dumbass with size would have an NHL job.
