Mike Santorelli, VAN (1 yr, $550K)

While Valtteri Filppula, Mikhail Grabovski, Derek Roy and Mike Ribeiro are all in the same ballpark (and even a little more productive) in terms of stats, Santorelli’s conribution to the Canucks while being a minimum wage earner has been pretty remarkable.  Santorelli’s +9 rating is also better than the four previously mentioned centres.
