What I'm trying to say is he's the type of guy you keep, with excellent versatility, if the cost doesn't prohibit you from making other moves.

With the free agent market what it is, and with trades being difficult to accomplish, I think you have to keep a guy like him.

Like the always astute Benchy says, he's the versatile depth player you can with.

We saw this when we won the cup and he was our second line center for much of the playoffs, contributing huge goals and solid defensive play.

I'm not for paying Flip $5M a year. But I'm not for paying $3.75 a gallon for gas either.

You gotta pay to play.
