Because he fits into what teams want in a playoff defenseman (he has a ring in 2019, he went to the Finals in 2021 and he’s tough as nails), he could be in demand.
Of course, his back could be a game-changer. But that’s up to Kent Hughes to convince other teams that he can stay healthy and make a big impact in the playoffs.
That’s the big challenge.
We know there were discussions at the deadline, but his state of health is an aspect that has forced teams to play cautiously in the case of the Flannel’s #44.
However, the player who will be a free agent in a year’s time can refuse to move if he plays his cards right with his clause preventing him from moving to 10 NHL markets.
We know that the man who earns $3.5 million a season wants to stay, but we don’t know how much.
– All the better.
– Yes, but having him on the mound for eight years will hurt.

– Good point.
He doesn’t have a cup? Ok. He’s not the only one.
No Art-Ross or Hart? No problem. It’s not even his fault he was playing at the same time as Gretzky and Lemieux! https://t.co/FuhAsPVSoQ
