I'm thinking its KHL or retirement for him.
Clearly there will be rumours about the top free agents, you hardly ever hear about other defenseman like Hannan, Jovanovski, Brewer and Hejda does that mean they all suck too and no one wants them? The guy had 34 points last year and played over 22 minutes a night on a team that finished in 6th place, if you don't think one team aside from the Habs will give him a contract then clearly you are just biased against him. He can easily play on a bottom pairing for a contender and rebuilding teams always need veterans to help their young players.
