Yes a No Brainer re-sign.
Prior to his injury I suggested 2 years, perhaps 3 times $2.2 mill. The guy played center on our 4th, 3rd and 2knd lines this year, RW on our 4th, 3rd, 2knd and 1st line and some LW. Did not look out of place anywhere, although it could be argued he was hitting above his weight. He checked his arse off, won puck battles was good on draws, killed penalties, took the puck to the net, was responsible defensively, had a nice collection of a Cpl of snipes, some smart passes, garbage goals and sheer effort of digging plays.
He was no worse than our 4th best forward, as hard working as Higgins offering more flexibility and a Cpl more skills.
$2.2 mill should be fair considering his age and how often he put up such seasons. I would pencil him to play 3rd line, confident he will make other players, like Jensen or Horvat, earn their positions and let their top end skills ultimately win over. And we would still have room for him!
