He has basically 1 1/2 years left on the contract so basically 3.75 cap hit for the 2 years.
That's an intersting one. Would he be reborn coming here? At 2.55 mil cap hit it would be cheap if he can bounce back a bit...3 and 4 years ago he was 31-33-64 and 31-28-59 then 08-09 and 09-10 he went 15-17-32(64 GP) and 20-17-37(80 GP). This year he is at 2-2-4 in 15 games.
He used to be a good 2 way player with size(6'2" 214lbs) and speed, good on PK and PP point. If I was sure he could be 75-80% of his prime I'd be all over him, but the last 2+ years scare me a bit...159 GP 37-36-73. Have his skills deteriorated badly or is it just a product of a diminshed role and NJ's system?
If he can fit in and play like a top 6 guy 5 on 5 it's worth it, otherwise we just add another expensive bottom 6 forward. Thought he could help on PK and PP.
