Gionta is at 0.5 ppg, not great but it's still fairly average for a top-6 player plus he's contributing in other ways (Leadership, Defensive play). For all the talk of him being useless and offence dying when he gets the puck his line is still productive so he can't be doing that bad. Unless his cap hit becomes a problem we should keep him.
I think he contributes to nothing. I guess he backcheck well but hopefully that's not the ingredient that makes you a second line guy. I guess that can give you leader license cause others take example of that.
