I get that the Wings want to treat their veteran players a certain way, but at some point, they have to put the needs of the team first. The re-signed him last year, knowing they had no cap or roster space. It hurt the team and other players. It turned out exactly how we all thought it would. So he has another unproductive, injury plagued year and it's like hey, lets give him a contract? It's mind boggling. This isn't a team lacking leadership or a veteran presence. Give him a figure head scouting job or off ice position, I don't care. But any talk of a contract of any kind is complete insanity. He was a semi decent player for a few years. This isn't Steve Yzerman or Nick Lidstrom we're talking about. The Wings owe him nothing.
