Personally, I'd love to see him back. It gives us depth at LW that was lost with the trade of Penner, and another vetran leader for the team. The cap hit or salary aren't a problem, especially since there's only 1 year left on the deal.
The only problem would be the assets needed to trade for him. As long as it's reasonable and doesn't hurt the long term direction of the club, I don't see any reason not to go for it.
he's got the sort of attitude and effort that the management wants to instill in this team, and his skills aren't so degraded that he can't contribute positively in a depth role. His salary really isn't an issue imo.
