I have no issues with him as a 3rd line center, but with a cap hit close to $6 for the next 7 years, I think if someone made an offer the Kings would be dumb not to take it. How many 3rd line players are making that much money?

I know he is a favorite of yours, but come on, the Kings traded for and took on that massive deal expecting something close to the 07-10 version of MR, not a 3rd line center.
Didnt you have the same gripe with Ryan Smyth? Too much money, cap space, the dude sucks and is over paid for what he contributes...
