Finger's problem in Toronto can be summed up by three points.

1.) Injuries
2.) Being overpaid by about 1.5ish million
3.) Being advertised as a shut-down d-man.

Jeff Finger is actually a pretty adequate d-man in most aspects of the game. He skates decently, can handle the puck, hits, blocks shots and has a decent shot

I think he has the ability to be a solid bottom pairing guy who is decent at both ends of the ice.

always thought he got a bum wrap just cuz of his salary
If he got paid $1.5 Million Per, he would have played on the Leafs, and would have been a reliable bottom pairing Defenseman. I'll be the first to admit that I rag on him for sucking but really its he just sucks because of the contract.

Rich man. Rich man. He's earning $12.36 per minute. And...21 Cents every second. He's pretty much sh*tting out quarters every time he takes a dump.
