Sorry but not sorry. He was a garbage player for us and was the same for the Coyotes. He should retire.

He was good his first season here but he was never the same after the injury he sustained later in that season. Took him the whole summer to get healthy etc etc.


I enjoyed his antics on the ice, I thought our team really needed that back then. He’s only 32, hopefully he finds his touch again.

Always liked Rouss, he just couldn't bounce back fully from what was a pretty serious injury. Hope he makes it. Calling him garbage simply isn't true, he was full value that first season. 

If you call coming into camp with a concussion and missing the first ten games, getting 20+ secondary assists and putting together 25-30 really good games only because he was riding shot gun for Bo Horvat being full value ($3M), then I'll have to say you have pretty low standards for value.


Gillis should have signed Roussel, not Benning.  He would have been the perfect replacement for Burrows after Burrows fell off the cliff after the lock out season.
