I was not for or against it, just figured I'd play it by ear and not get upset about blocking young prospects. Because like i said then, if Feds shows that he deserves to be here then thats what should be the end result and it was. We signed him to a cheap contract. Low risk/high reward.
What exactly is high reward?

2006–07 Tampa Bay Lightning NHL 80 12 20 32 52 4 0 0 0 4
2007–08 New York Islanders NHL 67 16 17 33 40 — — — — —
2008–09 Pittsburgh Penguins NHL 65 16 23 39 44 24 7 7 14 4
2009–10 Pittsburgh Penguins NHL 80 11 19 30 50



Are you trying to tell me you'd rather have Ruslan Fedotenko for those number instead of letting someone like Kennedy or Weise or Grachev or MZA play?

Yes, I understand MZA needs to adjust to the NA style/rink. Yes I understand Grachev is only 20 and still does not appear ready.

But hell, I'd rather them in the lineup every night over Fedotenko if we're talking about him only scoring 30 points.

Hell, Kennedy had 26 last year.

I just don't see the point of this.
