. He's not solid enough defensively to be on the third line and the fourth line will probably now be looked for small grit/energy minutes which fits better for players like Cormier, Slater, Thorburn, and Machacek.
He may be 30 - but he looks like he's 15. I say he has another 10 years left in the tank.
Probably the fastest 30+ year-old guy in the NHL last year. I for one enjoyed watching him play. Gave it 110% each shift.
