Volchenkov plays well from the net to the corner, basically below the redline. That is a pretty limited skill set to be the highest paid defenseman on a team.
True, but what do you do with Volch? Sitting him is a waste of the money he's being paid. Can he be traded? Not sure anyone would want him, and who would replace him?
