What would you have done with him? Dump him for nothing? Watch our foreward depth take another hit? Let his 60 point capabilities walk away? What?
Waiting a little bit before giving him as much as 4 years on a contract might have been wise... Plus, it's clear we have a logjam at center.

What's the excuse to put Galchenyuk or Eller, who had just as many points without playing on the PP, all while being bigger, stronger and more complete as players, on the wing in your starting lineup? There is none.
