He is not Lidstrom or Pronger, but we're not going to get those guys, and he is arguably the closest among UFAs. Whether he is welcomed with open arms on the team, or creates jealousy amongst lesser paid, possibly more senior players, remains to be seen. If it's the former, I'd say he's worth the price. It's not my money and there is no doubt he'd make the Habs a better team.
He would solidify the Habs D. The Cap could be as high as 45. Markkov Reddon or Jovo would be a great 1-2
