Kennedy can be worth $2.3, and he may well be in San Jose...I wouldn't have wanted that at that price in Pittsburgh, but a change of scenery may do a lot of good for him. He was an an awful fit with Sutter and had done very little in the past with Sid or Geno so it was hard to find a regular place for him to succeed. He was hurt more than anyone else by the departure of Jordan Staal.
I know he's not an UFA and you're right his time was definitely up in Pittsburgh. My point was that while the price isn't exactly cheap to find the equivalent player in the Free Agent market would probably cost 3 million, on a longer term deal and the player is likely going to be a few years older than TK.
