Antropov didn't play like a 4 million dollar man I admit, but he didn't play like an 500, 000 dollar man either.
If Antro were signed for the same dosh as Poni, then he'd be extremely good value for a 3rd line player. Given that the Jets don't have a problem with Salary Cap at this point, his contract is what it is. I'm happy that the signings and general player improvement have pushed him down to the 3rd line - that 3rd line will be a very effective line, IMHO.

I don't have an issue with someone having a problem with his play style or his large contract, but wishing he were in the minors is a bit much, IMHO. I simply don't see enough depth at forward to displace him from a 3rd line role. sipowicz - who would you place ahead of him?
