He'd still be playing 20 minutes if it weren't for Stamkos. He's worth more than Brad Richards.

I understand the hesitancy, mainly because he's probably going to have a hard time scoring 30 goals. But this guy can still put up 80 points with this team. We have plenty of potential finishers on this team, what we don't have is a guy like VL. I saw little with Johansen to indicate he is close.
I'd rather pay Bob 22 M over 4 years than to pay Vinny L. 24+ M over the same. You will not agree with this, hence my cliche.
