Regular Season:

13 points in 11 games (1.18 PPG), +1


1 point in 7 games (0.14 PPG), Even

*shoulder injury*

10 points in 27 games (0.37 PPG), +2


4 points in 6 games (0.66 PPG), -3

So all statistics considered he ended with 0.54 PPG, very good for a 37 year old blueliner. But he hasn't reached 50 games in either of his last two seasons, and he isn't getting any younger, so the most money I'd give him is $1 million for 1 year. I don't expect him to score 45 points like he was on pace for last year, mainly because he wouldn't be on the PP with Forsberg and Gagne.

But I think Bouillon or Dandenault would have to go for this to work, and I don't see that helping us very much as they both have 3 years left on their contract and Desjardins probably couldn't get mroe than 2 years out of anybody.
