It's not a question of his brain. It's a question of him being physically able to keep up and play hockey at a high level at an old age.

Shero's walking a tight rope with this one, as he was with Guerin, Roberts (remember how these 2 ended up?), and potentially Gonchar and Whitney.
I think Whitney is much closer to Selanne in a comparison than he is to Guerin or Roberts. From watching Whitney, nothing suggests that he's going to be slowing down. Selanne at 40 years old is still a player that has it in him to produce. I get a similar vibe from Whitney.

What people are saying though is correct. Once the wheels fall off Whitney, we'd be better off signing anybody else.
