He's better than the two other choices (Gilroy/Robak) and cheap at 900k.

If he plays well, good. Might get a 4th (maybe even two 4th's if lucky) round pick at the deadline.

If he sucks, well.. he's playing the role (bottom pairing) that gets blamed for all the **** anyway.

I'd add that even when he's been healthy, he's looked like he's lost a step all the time, except during the series against New Jersey. Add into the mix those boneheaded decisions when he decides to join the rush (which works like 1/20 times), he's pretty much useless.

No matter how good of a leader and presence in the locker room he is (supposed to be), there's just a certain moment in a player's career when the player needs to know when to quit. Jovo has passed that moment already and for the team's sake, I hope he realises it after this season.
