Yeah, I'm just trying to be optimistic with him at this point since he won't be scratched.
This...

Most Penguins fans seemed to back off the TK hate when he was moved to the 4th line. The thinking (assumedly) was that he had more energy and played a bit better with fewer minutes. Now that the team is so deep with the impending return of Crosby, TK is again stuck with tire tread on his back.

In any case, the guy will most assuredly get some team to offer him at least 2m/per, and I'd argue that most fans would be happy to see him go.

For the playoffs, however, depth cannot be overvalued, so whether it's TK or BB waiting in the wings, its a good 'problem' to have...

Edit- Both TK (throughout his career) and BB(SMALL SAMPLE SIZE) have been beasts on fenwick and corsi, and TK at one point in his career even led the team in both.
