what's with all the people so against this?
just because he's 39 and has been in the KHL for a few years?
3 years ago he put up 71 points in the NHL(and 15 points in 10 games in the playoffs),4 years ago he put up 96 points in the NHL,5 years ago he put up 126 points
just one month ago in a tournament with Spezza,Tavares,Nash,Duchene,Havlat,Plekanec,Koivu,Ovechkin,Radulov,Kovalchuk,Gaborik,Hossa and others he was named the best forward
on top of all this he's one of the best players EVER and deserves the benefit of the doubt for that alone
and a bunch of people here don't want him? even on a reasonable 1 year deal? really?
