Will battle in the corners, small but not soft, backchecks hard, by reports is great, GREAT locker room guy. Everybody loves him. Great leadership, experienced guy.
But the style has taken toll on his body and began to break done in 11-12. Got worse in 12-13. His knee(s) are bad, skating has gotten very slow. Not fast enough to do that stuff that made him effective.
For your sake, I hope you don't sign him for 3 years. Or pray to god he bounces back. Well, that cap hit won't be that bad.
I actually think little faster but grittier and better work ethic having Mike Knuble is somewhat good comparison at this point. D is little better too but has dropped the past few years.
