It's too bad he didn't make himself more valuable this past season, and I will admit he was an effective playoff performer for his type. Boggles my mind why he was scratched in the playoffs when he plays his best, and even if he wasn't up to snuff, his speed alone should have garnered him a spot.
Best of luck, TK.

The Problem is, since he was RFA, you can't make DECREASED money during your RFA years. He isn't worth 2.0M, not with this cap, this year. So no way we could keep him. I agree he's a GREAT 4th liner. Good speed, good grinding, chipping, and put in 12 goals a year on his own. Just not worth it for this team anymore.
