On the ice, we know he's a shotblocking beast. Off the ice, he's a mentor to the young players. 1 year of mentoring
Cowen would do wonders for his development.
He says he wants to play a couple years more before considering starting to coach. Could be Richardson 2.0
We have cap space. We have a roster spot for him. We have a gaping hole for a shot blocking D.Only problems I see is his age, skating, offensive skills and maybe he wants to sign with a strong cup contender to close his playing career.
1 year deal at 3mil. Slight overpayment just to better our chances, but it's not like we're desperate for cap space.
I'd love to see him sign here for a year, but he's not the type of player a rebuilding team goes after. But for 1 year, the mentoring he does off/on ice could help Cowen and others a lot down the
I like this idea he seems like a great team guy and can help some of our young defenseman thrive defensively.
