Its going to be so weird seeing him in a different jersey.
If anything blame the guys who signed him to that ridiculous contract. I know it was "market value" at the time but didn't they think anything about a possibility that another lockout could occur and the cap would go down again? I know its hard to project these things but I feel like they could have gotten him a bit cheaper than they had.
