This team is already one of the weakest around...so why do we go for an aging soft perimeter guy??? I hope you're right about him playing a more defensive game.
He isn't being asked nor paid to be a 50 goal, 100 point player. He's being asked to pump in 25-30 goals and bring experience to a line that is likely to feature Gomez and Zherdev.

With Gomez's playmaking ability, the first line is in pretty good shape if they can get 50-60 goals out of two wingers.
