The problem with signing him and Darche and any else from last year is its at best its status quo, how are we going to get better? Sure with George and Markov playing all year we could be slightly better, but its not enough. Keeping the majority from last year means the only way we can improve significantly is that a majority of players have career years, not going to happen. We need new blood, 1 or 2 changes means we fight for a playoff spot again.
I was waiting for some people to say that so I could tell them that life is not static. Life is cycles and adaptation. You can't predict the future solely based on the past. AK is only 26. He could go up, he could go down, he could remain the same, but saying he'll never be a 30 goal scorer is as foolish as those who believe it's set in stone that he will score 30.
BTW, if Markov and Subban play the whole season, we aren't talking of a status-quo, but an entirely new situation.
