I don't think it was directed to him personally, it was just his contract. This year I think his pay was fine, but the next few years was way too much money for a 4th liner. Honestly, his numbers aren't that far off from his last 2 seasons, but I think the opportunity to trade for a goalie came up and since we had an excess of something the Oilers needed, it made sense to move his contract. He's a really nice guy and a good locker room and team guy. I'm probably the only one that was happy to have him here, I was disappointed when we traded him in the first place all those years ago. I wish him luck in Edmonton!

You're right though, we do have too many of the same parts.
