1) He isn't supposed to replace Jagr.

2) He isn't crap. He is a roleplayer that fills his role superbly. He isn't going to light up the scoreboard on a nightly basis, but he isn't expected to. He will play a solid 2-way game and put up points sporadically when the opportunities come.

3) The guy is a proven playoff performer. See what he did for the Rangers last year. The guy knows how to play when the chips are down. He has shown that he is able to ratchet his game up to meet the challenge in the post season as opposed to some others who fall off a bit when the pressure is on.

There is absolutely nothing to dislike about this signing.
