It's time we move on without Patty. He'll always be the first up when talking about the glory years, but $5.5 is ridiculous. He's always hurt or invisible. With the occasional 3point game. Keep him for about $2.5.
Always hurt? Like last year, when he played in all 48 games, or the year before that, when he played in 81, and the year before that, when he also played in 81 games?
Including this season, dating back to the start of the '10-'11 season (246 games, exactly three seasons' worth of games), he's scored 68 goals and had 135 assists for 203 points, on teams not exactly known for being offensive jaggernauts.
He's not a highlight reel, but still a very effective player. And because he got hurt this season doesn't mean he's "always" hurt.

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime? - Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.
Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.
It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
