seems to have diminished in recent years so i am a little hesitant. could be a Jokinen 2.0 type signing (even though Jokinen was a trade). cheap, not doing well, come here and maybe flourish for another 2-3 seasons? who knows.
Would he be a good fit with J Staal and Skinner on 2nd line? Seems to be in doghouse in LA and could probably be had fairly cheap. Only 32 years old and still has a few good years left in him.
Been a fan of his ever since he was in Philly.
Got himself an injury problem though. Isn't usually able to make it a full season without getting hurt. But if he does work out, it could be a cheap replacement that makes Ruutu and Jokinen expendable.
