I meant that its good in the sense that you might get some decent production out of him for awhile, but inevitably you'll get the chance to give someone young who has been doing well in the AHL a chance to fill in. He would need to come cheap for the cap $ to work.

I don't think I've ever thought that getting someone injury prone was a plus, but in this particular case, I'm not sure its a negative. If he plays the whole season... then great. If he gets injured early and can't play again, then that's what LTIR is for.
