He was booed here because of ignorance, not his play. Has he under achieved in relation to salary at times? Yes, but that's free agency. You'd be hard pressed to find a dozen guys who signed on July 1st who meet expectations. He's been a top 4 guy for us his entire time here and been invaluable mentoring, Karlsson, Cowen, Wiercioch etc. Its not as if his 5.5M cap hit kept us under cap stress to the point where we're losing better players. We've had tons of space to work with and a lack of decent D. It was a good signing then and it still is now.

Kovalev was the same thing. He was signed to be a top 6 forward, he was that and the Brennans and 100 section entitled fans were still mad. You just have to accept that there are a lot of stupid people in this world.
