No one doubts his leadership. But, are the Habs really close enough this season to pay him $4 mill+? I say no.
Plus, at age 37 (I think), don't you think he will decline sooner than later. In fact, it wouldn't surprise me to see a huge drop in his numbers this season (not saying it will happen, just it wouldn't surprise me)...at his age, the decline may not be gradual.
