Perhaps Ray Whitney can play forever. The Dallas Stars must think so after giving the eternal winger a two-year, $9 million free-gent deal.
How many other members of the 1991 NHL Draft class are still in the league?
Whitney got also got some no-movement and no-movement language in his generous deal. The Stars were willing to reach a bit to get a player with 21 or more goals in five of his last six seasons.
He is a power-play specialist at this late stage of his career. During his last three seasons -- one in Carolina, two in Phoenix -- Whitney produced 19, 26 and 20 points on the power play.
