For all the signing haters...think about the reality.
He plays more minutes than anyone else in the league, managed 59 points last year MEANWHILE killing the opponent's top units on the PP. IE: Detroit, SJ, etc.
He is irreplaceable like Murray said. Don't be greedy, it takes money to get a player. He is worth every bit of $6M. Hasn't lost a stride in his step and is a future HOF.
As for the other Niedermayer, the less gifted one, he's worth about $1.3-1.5M Max.
3rd. Behind Bouwmeester and a guy named Chris Pronger.
6 million is his worth. No discount though. I was hoping for like 5, in return for all the crap he put us through though. With the staycation and cap hell with Schneider and all. And for making us trade away the 2nd line center we so desperately need now.
