I don't understand that at all. There's nothing he can bring to the team that a younger player in the system can't do. He doesn't kill penalties, he doesn't fight much anymore and while he was here in the spring he really didn't even do the kind of hitting he did here the first time round. And even if there is no one in system, there have to be some younger free agents out there who can fill the same sort of roll.
