agreed that he'd be useful on the PP and agreed that he'd not be terribly helpful come playoff time. i was surprised when jags initially came back to the nhl with phili and got as much money as he did. difficult for me to think he'd take a 2m+ paycut, but hey, i also don't know the market and what the collective GM consciousness is at the moment on this guy. seems unlikely that NO team would offer him 4m and that jersey is his last option.
i'd be all for giving him 4m if it also meant we'd found a way to unload salvador, but that's more than wishful thinking.
