Theres plenty of risks involved, fortunately once the new tv money comes in we can buy him out or waive him and the cap will be so high it wont matter.
His size doesn't concern me. He has always been a tough player.

I really like the experience he brings.

But yeah, continue worrying about buying him out in a few years. God forbid the Oilers acquire a veteran with extensive playoff experience to play on the blue line.
