Asset pieces to make summer moves for the new ownership though? That's much more appealing when looking at the long road.
I was at the Isles game and, to my eyes he played well. Last night he made a CRUCIAL shotblock that may have helped gain us a point. I realize he's had a god-awful season at times, but unless there's something better out there, we need him. A playoff run will help make this team more attractive to players that we're trying to bring here in the summer. AND, my gut feeling is that if we get in, he's going to want to atone for his **** show last year against the Bruins.
