He might make a team that is really looking for playmaking talent, but I doubt he'd play a major role for a contender at this point anymore. Pity, because I really liked him.

About his pay: in absolute terms, I doubt he's making all that much more in Finland than he'd make in the NHL. Finland is a pretty small country, afterall...

This thread reminds me: what happened to Padawan? He's never around anymore, and not just on the Rangers board.
He's much more likely to pick up some money doing endorsements (I'll always have fond memories of Adam Graves hawking Bay Ridge Honda/Volvo) and will be able to speak (and hear) Finnish every day--not to mention be allowed to increase the temp enough to make it a real Finnish Sauna. And that may be enough.
