So no..We didn't overpay TC
This, it's not just his stats that he bring to the team. The amount of shots he alters or players don't take because of his presence is off the charts. Plus when you compare his contract to what the rest of the C's around the league get (DJ, Hibbert, Asik, Lopez) he is pretty solid value.
