Claude Lemieux wants back in?

My french is a little rusty (damn near rusted completely), so I'll take the word on the street, which is that this article says "Lemiuex has been training intensely for 10 weeks." and other various things.

He wants back in.

The now 43 year old wants back in the NHL. Right. His last season in the NHL was in 2003, in which he split time between Dallas and Phoenix, scoring 20 points in 68 games. His last season of professional hockey was in 2004, where he played 7 games for Zug of the Swiss league (scoring 5 points).

Now, here's the real question: does Colorado, and it's fans, want this old man on their team? My answer is hell yeah!

There's no way he's worse than Detroit's Darren McCarty, so why not sign him to a 450K contract?
