Paul Kukla has the release. Claude Lemieux is in the NHL again, because apparently the Sharks don’t have anyone better than a 43-year-old has-been in their system.Â
And before anyone says anything, this is nothing like the Wings taking care of an old warrior like they did with Darren McCarty. If the Avs or Devils were bringing “Clode” back, that’d be one thing and would be analogous to McCarty’s return. But San Jose? I don’t get it. Does the guy really have anything left? I guess we’ll see.Â
If he’s still around on Feb. 25, things’ll get interesting at the Joe.Â
Greg Wyshynski has a different take on the move. No surprise there.
