Realize for most of you that this signing is pretty insignificant, but as a Jets fan, I am pretty stoked to see how this guy performs this shortened season. Hopefully his production in the 10 games he got last season wasn't a fluke and he can become a talented 3rd liner with some time on the 2nd line. No word on the terms of the contract yet. Now we just have to wait on Kane :(

Edit: If that is indeed his contract, that is great value.
