I wouldn't be so sure about that. We're still talking about:
- Bottom pairing defensive dman
- 6th in TOI/G among Leafs dmen that played at least half the regular season games. 8th (out of 9) among all Leafs dmen with no GP restriction.
- 6th in TOI/G in the playoffs.
- 3rd in SH TOI/G regular season with GP limit, 6th without limit.
- Played a total of 30 NHL games the prior two seasons before playing 45 this past season.
- Career 16 points in 143 games (0.11PPG)

When arguing stats in front of the arbitrator, his best two attributes are going to be playing on the 2nd PK pairing and leading the team in +/-.
Yes. Not sure if all that is worth an over-doubling of his last seasons' $600k salary.

Perhaps not heading to arbitration was a bad idea.

Then again, the market is wishy-washy on what these kindof guys are actually worth.
