I was truly against this before when it came down to it, but now that it's almost inevitable that he's going to sign, I ask at least three things:
1) Get rid of Prucha. Trade him for something valuable while he's still worth SOMETHING. Decent roster player. 2nd round pick. 6th/7th d-man. something.
2) Do NOT make him captain. While he's certainly a great leader and is always making me happy by his constant appeal of questionable calls out on the ice, I really don't want to see it handed out as if it's some complimentary gift. If he wasn't 40, fine, but he's 40, so give it to Drury or Gomer.
3) Get rid of either Rissmiller and/or Voros, and let Shanahan play third line while bumping Dubinsky to the top six.
HONESTLY, I don't see how he affects the PP that much. For crying out loud the guy scored double digit goals on the PP. He doesn't hurt it. He's especially not hurting time for a kid to do much on it because what kid has done much on it or really will? Dubinsky had 1 PP goal last year. You can still throw kids and Shanny into it.
