On the Rangers he would have wound up around
in scoring with those points.
Second he is pretty decent on the PP. Nuff said there, no?
Third, have you seen where the Rangers are now in scoring? How about this
We need offense. From wherever we can
So what is there NOT to "get" - if he can come in for cheap and contribute?
Kids are not quite ready. No need to rush them... We have seen before where that leadeth.
If the slide continues - team will likely be blown up anyways. Signing him for cheap now & he could easily get us an asset at the deadline for nothing but money if that is the case. Win/win
He's also soon 39 years old. His numbers will decline, especially in a full 82 game season (although of course he already missed some). So he'd probably slip to below 6th in scoring, which more or less makes him a bottom six forward on this team. I'd much rather play Kreider, Miller, Hrivik, Lindberg and Fast over Vinny. A washed up Prospal won't solve our scoring woes anyway.
