As much as he did last year while he was with the Flyers, I can see him signing and then spending most of his time in the trainer's room. He is a risky gamble.
Once again, reputation gets in the way of facts. In 12 NHL seasons, Zhamnov has played more than 60 games 9 times. He's injured a bit more than most people, but it's not horribly bad, I don't view signing him as that much of a risk. More like a gain.
