He is probably a 40 pt guy but he is slow and appeared to be tiring out towards the end of last year's shortened season. But he is a good room guy and could possibly help from that point.

He's not the end all solution but for a one year deal at 2 mill or so is probably worth a shot.
He was slow, done, tiring out 2 years ago (i thought the same thing) yet he put up 2 good seasons after that.

With the injuries up front, its a move that might be smart.

Or we could keep playing Miller and Fast and watch them do nothing to warrant being with the big club other than there being no other options.

But they are young and home grown so they could do everything wrong and some people will still sing their praises.
