Why not title threads like Buzzfeed? That face you make when you look at the Devils' stats.
Dainius Zubrus has had a very solid, if unexceptional career. This is his 8th season as a New Jersey Devil. He has never had more than 44 points in a season but for his first 5 seasons in a Devils uniform he was remarkably consistent points-wise - he was always right around .5 points/game, with between 10 and 20 goals. Indeed, Zubrus ranks 30th all time in franchise points. He's also having an atrocious year and he's 36 going on 37 with 1200+ NHL games under his belt.
Everything has gone wrong for Zubrus this year, who ranks 370th out of 397 qualified forwards in points/60. He also ranks 380th in shots/60. He's just not offensively capable enough to play anything more than a 4th line role, and yet there he is getting top 9 minutes. The Devils have been able to say goodbye to players like Jay Pandolfo and Sergei Brylin when they were past their expiration date - the Devils' other issues shouldn't confuse management. He's a replacement-level NHLer at best - his offense is terrible, he takes too many penalties, but he can still play defense okay. I like Zubrus a lot - the Devils clearly do too - but that contract was a disaster the minute it was signed and it's about as bad as a 3 year, 9.3M contract can be.
