These types of players are also heavily overvalued around the league which makes them chronically overpaid.

At least we're not paying Milan Lucic $6M/y to watch from the press box.
I'm not against signing him no matter what, I just don't think they should overpay or commit to anything long-term. If he can get a long-term big money deal somewhere else, so be it, let him go. If he's willing to take something shorter, I'd have him back. He's a big guy, he wins almost every board battle and he sticks up for his teammates. You can't have a ton of those guys on a lineup, but having one isn't bad.

Also, say what you will about Lucic's play right now, but I'd take him on this team any day of the week. You win with players like that, again, not a ton of them, but one or two. Plus, Lucic is still young. He'll rebound.
