3rd line center instead of Moore/Boyle. Going for it all this year since they can still fit him under the cap. Still have the option (barring injury) to buy him out next year. Leader in the room, experienced vet on a mostly youthful team. Only cup winner.

Sure, it's a roll of the dice, but it's not that hard to see why they kept him

In what everyone has admitted was clearly the worst professional year of his career, he was still on pace for 60 points.

Who was going to take his spot. The FA pool was mediocre. The center prospects aren't ready to make that jump and like it or not, he's still a productive player, even if he's not worth that contract.
