People always use the +/- stat to justify that Souray is awful defensively. In the last 3 years, Koivu played an average of 74 games (18,5 TOI) and Souray played an average of 73 games (22,8 TOI).

Koivu +/- : -5, +1, -21

Souray +/- : +4. -11, -28

Last year was basically a defensive nightmare for the whole team. While he is not recognized for his defensive abilities, Souray is still logging a lot of ice-time against the opponents' top lines. Losing him via free agency would certainly not make us a better team. It will be really interesting to see what Gainey will do. Right now I feel we have Markov, Komisarek...and the rest.
