That's the Paul Holmgren way of dealing with the cap. $3 million is a problem since Quick's extension begins this upcoming season and Brown is due for an extension and raise. A number of RFAs also have to be re-signed, and Voynov just received a raise.
And if you think he's better than half the team, if you're talking the bottom 6, yeah, you're right. But as of right now, Brown/Kopitar/Williams/Richards/Carter are all better than him. All 5 of those guys play both ends of the ice like he does. Would he be a good fit on LW? I am not sure because of his size. He would be on the second line and Richards is already a pretty small guy so having two of them together might be a problem.
