Yep, the worst contract of the summer, my friends. Without Ovechkin and Kuznetsov, he's a mere 3rd liner. Unless they win another Stanley Cup, this is a huge loss for the Capitals. Yes, he stands up for his teammates. But he also is the second most penalised player in the league after Micheal Haley. And that is not good company. I hope the Capitals don't make another overpayment. Because if they stack bad deals on top of each other like Detroit or Chicago or Los Angeles did, this could get pretty nasty. At least, he had 50 points in 99 games if you count the playoffs. If he replicates that production for the next 6 years (which is almost impossible), it's a good contract.
