What's all the bitching about?
Rucchin is a good rolemodel and is only here for a season.
Same goes for Straka and Rucinsky, who are here for a season to actually help us and to teach our young prospects. It's fine to rebuild but you have to have veterans, too. Yet, you forget to mention the Malik signing, which is another good deal since Malik is underrated IMO and is only 30. Yes, only 30. So, we have Jagr, Rucinsky, Straka, Rucchin, and Kasparatis(Whom Hugh Jessiman had good things to say about)over 30. With Malik being 30, Poti about 28, and Weekes(29?). With Lundmark, Balej, Murray, Wiseman, Moore, etc and some guys who will be ready next season(Jessiman) when Straka and Rucinsky are FAs again. So, stop with the crying, you're acting like we're filling up the roster with guys over 35 that have three year deals, it's simply not the case and rebuilding can't happen over night, you have to have leadership and our veterans add that.
