Absolutely he could, and no one has said otherwise, but the odds certainly don't favor it. When you sign a player like Souray, factoring in his age and injury history, you want to minimize the risk... and a three year contract is not doing that. This is the type of contract that will be perceived as bad until proven otherwise, not the other way around.
I wish I had your brain.
