He'll only be 30 when he's a UFA and with his durability it's worth the longer contract. Pairing him with Schenn could help make up for J-Bo's lack of physical play.
I would go for him big time. He would give us exactly what we need. Flyers of course have been very interested in him before and also I believe were interested when he was on the block this year. St Louis is reportedly interested in re-signing him though. There were reports out before though that he didn't want to come here, same deal with Suter pretty much.
