Yeah, let's give any other bottom 6 player Malhotra's zone starts and linemates and see if he can do any better. I guarantee you he'll ask for a trade by week 2.
He's still a serviceable player, but at $2.5M the Canucks are paying a steep price for a 4C. He was signed to be a 3C but his on ice vision just isn't there post injury. Credit to MG for not burying him or buying him out since the injury wasn't his fault, but I don't see him getting that much this summer when his contract is up.
