Cheechoo - A fit on Broadway?

Two days ago, Steve Zipay of Blue Notes asked New York Ranger fans if they would like to obtain San Jose Sharks’ winger Jonathan Cheechoo should he be made available:

The Sharks have Thornton, Marleau, Clowe, Pavelski, Setoguchi, Mihalek and more upfront and a lot of bitterness from the playoff loss to the Ducks. Little while ago, the word from a spy out West is that Jonathan Cheechoo is being made available. Makes sense, we heard the same thing at the trade deadline.

The right wing will be 29 in July. He’s 6-1, 200. Cap hit would be $3 mil in 09-10 and 10-11. Affordable, if you believe that he can turn it around once he’s off the third line.

Cheechoo did score 56 goals and 37 with Thornton before slipping to 23 and just 12 in 66 games last season.

Would you want him? If you do, who would you place him with? Could he help Scott Gomez or Chris Drury turn their games around or would he be another free-agent bust who signed on Broadway? What are your thoughts?
