- Good guy in the room

Negatives:

- Has slowed down tremendously. Pitt forwards regularly beat him to the puck / spot in the playoffs
- Virtually no physical presence - in front of the net or corners
- Defensive positioning is poor. Combination of slowing down and and not being able to compete physically, especially since the injury two years ago.

Here is what it is going to take to sign him: 4 yrs min (Isles offered 3) in the range of
$20-22MM (Isles offered close to $15MM).

Bottom line: Play him on the PP and not more than 12-14 mins per night, you will be fine. He CANNOT play top 4 mins anymore. By the end of the playoffs, he was on the 3rd pair for the Isles, QB ing the PP. That is where he belongs and is most effective.

See above re: contract terms. Pretty much what I thought. This contract will not be good maybe as early as the second part of NEXT YEAR.....
