<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Hockeyfan1972</b></div><div>Seems there is some serious conversation regarding this contract that is based in a lot of areas that does not happen here too often. I can see both sides of this but I must interject.

In no way is Nathan a all star. Nathan is a very good player in the right situation, be it in the NHL or AHL. Nathan has a unique place in either league given his stature and that can not go under appreciated. He has defeated all odds to make it to where he is and that given that he is a career 28 point player at the NHL level over and 82 game sample size (146 points in 413 games) proves he is no slouch.

A player like this is an inspiration not only to the fans but to people in the organization. At the NHL level this year he actually has a registered hit for every 12 minutes of play. There are only five players on the team that are higher than him on CBJ. Nathan is the epitome of a player beating all odds similar to Muggsy Bogues was in the NBA.

There is not cap implication. There is no drawback. Columbus is in no need to free up spots for up and coming prospects. There is not reason to object to this contract considering everything this player has to offer, not only in terms of production but in his experiences.</div></div>

Don't get me wrong, good for him. But he's not an NHL player and the AHL is really for player development. No need for guys in their 30s.</div></div>
