He had 33 points the last season he was in the NHL, by the way. I have an extremely hard time believing that he'll jump up to 50 after breaking his spine.
It's just a tryout. Even if he plays worse than anyone in the history of the NHL, there is no harm done. Now, if they give him a contract after he plays worse than anyone in the history of the NHL, then we have a problem.
