He'd be a good stabilizing presence on Coots line and Coots would be alone as the only solid defensive player on the 3rd line. THAT is the reason he should be a serious consideration for resigning.
We'll have to disagree..and if he signs I can't wait to see the lamentations during the season. I hope I'm wrong but I still think we would be better served passing on him...
