Ryder, Kostitsyn, Bourque, Gionta, Price, Hamrlik, Spacek, Kaberle etc etc.

He was paid 5.5m in 2009 money and he provided very little in ways of playmaking or point-presence (actually he was god-awful at the point)... he better have delivered the goods on defense or else he would've been the worst contract in the league.

You're crediting him for playing up to his contract, I don't understand it. He was SUPPOSED to play 22min+ a night, that's what he was paid for. He did an okay job at it, why is he venerated so much I'll never know.
