I dunno what JR has left to bring to San Jose, so hopefully for them it's "something".
But my question is more about the 500 goal milestone. And this sh!ts me. If you have to keep playing, at league minimum, for teams you don't care about, as a burned-out shell of the player you once were, to reach a milestone, is it worth reaching that milestone? To me that's just totally selfish. Pack and and go home on 495 (or whatever it is), and be remembered as a great talent that score 495. I don't think it adds anything to play as a 4th liner to squeak over 500. It's just a number, but seeing JR bitch and moan about his skates, linemates, ice-time and everything else to get to 500 devalues reaching that milestone to me.
If he contributes, great. If he's there for the number, it's piss-poor and I'm sick of players worrying about stats.
