I voted go because, well, if you find a taker, you have no reason not to get out of that contract, but I don't necessarily think he will be a total dumpster fire for the next four years.

Some old guys have unexpected resurgences. Alfredsson, Elias, B. Richards are a couple examples. I'm not saying we should expect him to get any better, but I also don't think it's impossible for him to get one or two more productive years out of his career.


His contract really isn't that expensive, either. If he can adapt his game to match his current skill set (unlikely, I know), it won't take all that much to provide 4.5m worth of value to the team.

And don't misconstrue these as reasons we should keep him if we have an opportunity to dump him. I'm not advocating that. In any way.
