I'd love to add him, but would be wary of the cost. I think the Avs would want more for him than what he's worth, still living off the fumes from those 70 pt campgains that are well in the rear view mirror.
Actually, he has had opportunities to play with Hejduk...Hejduk is not nearly what he once was though. Age is catching up to him. He is barely a 20 goal scorer at this
point. If that.
