Voted yes because this.

I prefer to have an extra card up our sleeve, even if it's a weak one. He'll also fill a gap next year when we probably won't re-sign Gionta and that we might lack leadership in the locker room.

Again, 2 years is just the perfect length; worst case it's going to be a failed experience with no setback. Plus, I don't see ourselves getting some better player through free agency. Also, this is a stretch, but I really hope he could help Leblanc bounce back.
