Knuble will be 37 years old. He's good at standing in front of the net and cashing in rebounds..that's it. His skating is going down and his 5v5 play is pretty bad. We have enough Vets to replace him in the locker room.
Knuble didn't even score 30 goals until he was 30. Lupul is only 25 and has higher upside. I think next year he explodes kind of like Hartnell this year. Everyone hated that Hartnell contract too...
he is what he is and will always be. a streaky one dimentional hockey player. he can get you 25-30 goals no doubt. but when hes not scoring goals he is useless.
Every team needs a guy like Knuble. I guarantee you this, if we cant sign him he will not be unemployed for very long after July 1st. He is more valuable then you think.
