Is that the same?
Fehr's contributions to the Caps have gone a lot further than just one game.

In the 3 seasons prior to last year Fehr scored 43 goals in 182 regular season NHL games. Obviously staying healthy is an issue for the guy but when he plays he puts the puck in the net at a reasonable rate and doesn't require a whole lot of ice time or PP time to do that.

And at 27 he still has plenty of time to put his health issues behind him and possibly reach his potential. So unlike a lot of the 36ish old guys some have been bringing up there could be a long term reward for this incredibly small risk also.
