That excuse just doesn't cut it for a 5.5M player anymore, he not only failed to provide secondary scoring but the role he was put in, he failed to play sound defence. -10 regular season and -10 in the playoffs being completely outplayed by a similarily payed player, David Krejci at 5.25M.
If anything, it just ascentuated the point he is not a very good player, when you make top 2 dollars on the team, you contribute anyway you can, and this player didn't. He doesn't even kill penalties, doesn't make linemates better, or take key faceoffs. Then what does he bring as a Center?
