After last season, he's going to have to earn a deal in training camp somewhere. Age caught up with him and he slowed down a lot. Not just in skating, but with his puck handling as well. A lot of the chances he used to bury ended up being saved, contested, or forced wide. He can still be a useful player in certain roles and a great locker room presence, but he's not going to fill a top six role full-time anymore.

It'll be interested to see if the additional time off will be a boon to him, or it will be the final nail in the coffin. He was a slow starter in Washington, so the shortened season doesn't seem like a good factor, either.
