Z isn't asked to shoot or contribute on offense. He is a 25 point or so scorer when he plays in a system that asks him to contribute. Tippett doesn't. If doing so lets OEL do his thing, it's worth it. I really have no problem paying one of the best shot blockers in the game $4 million. Unless you think Gordon isn't worth the money. He gets paid for the exact same thing, only with half the icetime and zero offense.

I can think of worse ways to spend $4 million. Players like Z are not sexy but you would notice it if they left.
