Any net benefit he brings by being a vet who gets in shape and skates hard is negated by the fact that he's a horrible choice for captain and has totally become an acceptor of losing.

Addition by subtraction by getting some cap space, giving the C to someone that cares if we lose, better aligning our pay scale vs performance and knowing that the guy can be easily replaced (which he certainly can for what he brings on the ice.)
Agreed with the bolded. He simply does not bring enough for what he is paid, and unless we buy him out and expect a young kid like Ewanyk to replace him, IMO it's a very good thing.
