This is a good fit for him, he's playing the best hockey of his career and he was working for peanuts all this time. I hope Shero gives him a "thank you" contract for what he's done in Pittsburgh.

Sort of like what Lamoriello did for Pandolfo...except less disastrous and with a happier ending.
At 34, I think he'll definitely make that third year a stipulation for re-signing. And I'm sure the Pens will give it to him. As they should, assuming he takes an underpaying contract.
