Someone like the Maple Leafs, Red Wings heck 29 other would be interested, I think.
Would've been intriguing if he wasn't looking worse for each day and had his albatross of a contract. There's no excuses for him anymore, he declined under Boudreau, he declined under Hunter and he's still declining under Oates. It's not about scenery IMO, he's simply not the player who can beat guys to the outside and put it top shelf anymore. He's maybe a 35-40 guy right now and you don't pay 35-40 guys $9.5M no matter his past achievements.
