The one thing I always notice is that he can extend possession and protect the puck in the O-zone, giving more time for others to setup, which could work if he has some decent linemates, not Ott and D'agostini.

I don't think we're in a position to buyout a veteran like him on a team like this.
To that point we only have two vet forwards signed for next season (Leino and Stafford) and possibly a 3rd if Kaleta is back.
