When I say I wouldn't mind . . . I mean on a very affordable short-term contract with absolutely no guarantees as far as playing time. But like I said, moot point. It's not happening.
Yeah I agree, if it's at a salary at maximum of $1,000,000 then why not. He can play powerplay and fill in on the top lines if some of our youngsters would falter, which isn't too far a stretch. He's been around though and contrary to what everyone says, I don't think he's much of a locker room issue if there's already a tight group there. He could be a decent mentor (although not work ethic wise...) to our younger guys. He sure got experience.

But no, I don't see it happening and while I'm not totally oppose it, I wouldn't mind signing some depth defensemen instead.
