Teams aren't going to want to sign an enforcer with a huge rap sheet. One incident and they will lose him for half the season or more. When the enforcers entire job is to fight and play tough, that's a pretty big risk to take. It's much safer to sign an enforcer with a clean record that isn't afraid of getting kicked out of the league if he crosses the line a little bit.
At 33 if he doesn't he is out of the game anyway. He really has no choice.
