He is severely overrated. (and he's not that highly rated) He is now 33 years old. 6 consecutive minus seasons in plus/minus. Only 8 goals total scored in last 3 years. Only 3 PP goals in last 3 years.
(Even Nathan Dempsey scored 10 goals in his last year)

There are a ton of better available D-men:

Rafalski, Neidermayer, Rathje, Aucoin, Gonchar, McGillis, Foote, and Zubov
and Pronger and Derian Hatcher may be bought out.

Also, a 40 year old Robitaille on the 3rd line? The results would be horrific. 7 goals 9 assists. minus 20 .
