Oh ya, and the 82 games this year where he took on all comers and played 15 mins a night while playing on special teams, someone else would have done that too right? Seriously? Are you serious? The guy that was voted by his team mates for the masterson isnt an important piece of The Sens. I feel sorry for you if you actually believe what you just said.
He's not "core". Why don't we leave it at that? What he brings, and for the kind of money he makes, he's a gem. But let's face it, when his current contract runs out and he's still playing at this level, he's going to demand a lot more than his current salary, at which point you make a decision.
