He's not the guy you put against the other teams top forwards to shut them down like those other guys. His all around game just isn't where it needs to be to be paid like an elite Dman.
As an UFA he can get well over 7 million per. Gonchar is almost 40 years old and got 5 million per. Streit just got 5.25 million per. Letang is in his prime and every team would make a run at him.
