I don't understand the talk about Hansen not being a good 3rd line player. If anything, Hansen is an ideal 3rd line player. He's not a good 2nd line player and he's certainly not a 3rd line/4th line tweener.

The guy has scored so many big goals for this team, he plays in every situation, he's even cleaned up his act on the ice. He even took a major haircut on his previous contract to allow GMMG to keep the core together and add depth to help the team. When he signed that $2M deal he could easily have gotten close to $4M somewhere else.
Is it purely because of his reputation that people want him gone?
