Yeah he's only 30, has had a couple of 40 point seasons and has a 0.46 career PPGM(38 points/82 games), so it's far from a stretch that he can play top 9 if he is 100%.

I remember in the summer of 2010 before Toronto signed him(to a ridiculous contract), I and many other Hab fans were hoping he'd sign here to add some grit and truculence.

It's a low risk(1.42% of the cap at 1 mil), high reward(if he can bounce back to the 30-40 point range, bring some physicality and play 3rd line).
