He'll be a fan favorite here. He does not mind doing the dirty work, and even at his age he is in great shape and will drop the gloves if need be. He can make a pretty pass and check someone into next week, on the same shift. He really is similar to Sid in that he has a grinder mentality but the skill set of a superstar. He has averaged 40 goals over the past five seasons, and during that time he never played with a center even remotely as good a passer as Crosby.
This is just a huge, HUGE acquisition. This guy is a winner and a HOF talent whose game is still intact. And He has hand picked this team to play for, which means he's extremely hungry.
