1) The big knock on him wasn't that he wouldn't be effective, its that he becomes complacent and that he doesn't show up in big games.
2) How many teams past over him before Nashville gave him the league minimum? Don't get mad at the Penguins because they didn't sign him.
He'll go from being a hero to nothing if he doesn't show up in the playoffs.
I'm already patting myself on the back, so you're too late.
1. I wish the Pens were in a position to have to worry about guiys disappearing in big games. If nothing else that would mean they were contending for a playoff spot.
2. I don't care how many other teams passed on him. This club had a gaping hole at center and they still do. I still can't believe they ever though Pirjeta was a viable option to center a scoring line.
