Let's not forget he's looked good before (which is how he ended up with such a ridiculous deal in the first place) and then fallen off a cliff.
This team has plenty of bad hockey players, they don't need more.
If we were talking about guys with size and some snarl who can play a competent two way game, that's a different story.
Replacing top sixers with third and fourth liners doesn't end wel
l (or do you not remember JFJ on the first line?)
Current top 6ers: Hall, RNH, Yakupov, Eberle, Hemsky, Gagner, Perron and maybe Arcobello.
That's 7 guys that have spent much of their careers in the top 6 and a possible gap filler in Arco until something better comes along. We need more bottom 6 grit and top 6 grit but since we won't get top 6 grit for the likes of Gagner and Hemsky you take what you can get and work towards getting that type of a player.
