You want him as a mentor, but he wants to be an NHL player for some reason, but it's over- no team will give him a roster spot.
As an example, his BFF (blowhard fan favorite) Roenick just gave San Jose two meaningless seasons. 4 liner production and leadership? The early playoff exits show how much that is worth, and Roenick can actually still play, unlike Grandfather Chelios.
And it bugs me that these octogenarians always mention the Rangers first when they are looking for a contract. What are we, the old elephant burial grounds in perpetuity? Stop the insanity!
Pass. Big pass.
Very good point. In hockey, leaders lead by example.
