And just to be clear, I'm not anti-Souray. He's certainly not my first choice of players to add, but when he's healthy and playing well he's a potent addition to any team's special teams. My problem is with the contract. I just don't get the logic behind signing a 36 year old, which is already the twilight of the average NHL career, who also has a long history of injuries, to a three year contract worth 11 million. Souray's own personal history says we'd be lucky to get two healthy seasons out of him, and that's without factoring in his age, which casts even more doubt on his durability.
