I bet some still think he's a youngin, but he's been in the league
for 10 years or so. He should be a locker room presence as well.

Heck, even the players you might think are new, like Lucic and
Marchand have been with the team for 4 years or so.

This is the type of signing I hate.
Yes he brings more experience, and less likely to hurt you, but
he will do nothing to help you.

I'd rather live with the growing pains in the regular season of a
player like Tardiff, Sauve, Spooner and get them ready for the
playoffs.
Believe me, you're preaching to the choir. I was just trying to wrap my head around the signing. The guy can't skate at an NHL level anymore, obviously can't help on the power play, and the Islanders chose to pass on keeping him on Long Island, so that was the only area left that could constitute the signing in my eyes.
