Paul seems to get a lot of unfair criticism from Pens fans. Is it frustrating to read that stuff?
It is frustrating. They give him such a hard time. Paulie goes out and does an unbelievable job every night. He does all the little things as a hockey player. Maybe he doesn’t score much, but you have to think about what he does in his own end, how good of a stick he has and how hard he is to play against. If you really know hockey, you’ll understand how smart and how skilled he is.

I think the contract was fine based on expectations, but maybe not on what we ended up with for the most part so far. I don't think the $5mil/year is as obscene a number as some make it out to be.
