Off ice issues are not irrelevant. It's called a "sideshow" and it will create a media circus in MTL.
Have you not learned anything from the 2011-12 season?
I'm quite sure no one cares what we or the media think, and why would they? We'd all still go to the games and if anything, Byfuglien would likely increase revenue and team performance and THAT is something owners and management care about. His on-ice performance and work-ethic are just fine and, as far as I know, he's a team player.
I don't think we need to be dramatic about it.
In terms of contract, 5.2mil is a pretty good cap hit and not a bad contract. He's still only 28.
For an often dominant and potentially game-breaking player, I'm not sure why any of us would say no if he came in at the right price. He's a good player.
