I hate it when people talk about a signing by pointing out how a player played 4 or 5 seasons ago. Seriously? He may very well be good, I don't know. But when I hear "if so and so plays the way they did back in '06 or '07 (or even '03 I've heard), it's a good signing" that indicates that player has done nothing since then.
The disease has made him a shadow of his former self. He was a good pest and plucky winger in his day, but that day is long gone. Kind of sad for both parties that this is what the Hawks are reduced to signing with all their cap troubles.
My prediction on his line at the end of the year: 35 games, two goals, four assists, seven points, 12 PIM.
At least he'll get to take part in the Cup banner raising.
Yeah but look what team he was on.
When you're part of a team, you have to take part of the blame for a team's failure as you would credit for its success.
The Oilers were a bad team because they had no chemistry in their top six and no grit and desire in their bottom six. Their defence was laughable and their goaltending atrocious, aside from a few good early games from Khabby.
