Anyone want Jan Hlavac?
He's kind of under the radar because he's not on any UFA lists. He put up a 28g, 36a season in 2000-01 and slowly faded from the NHL. At 29 years old, he's not over the hill by any means. He could flourish under the new rules, or be the same old Jan Hlavac. I don't see any harm in offering him a 2-way contract with an option to return to Europe if assigned to the AHL. That way if he doesn't make the team in camp, he won't cost against the cap.

Yeah, but the problem is that someone will probably offer him more than a 2-way minimum type deal. If he would take one, I'd definitely do it...we'd have nothing to lose. Then if he doesn't make the team out of camp, he can go play in Europe or something. The fact that he only scored 5 goals in 72 games with the Rangers last season, along with the fact that he really doesn't have much value unless he's scoring makes me pretty nervous though. At least with some guys they still play a valuable role to the team even if they're not putting up points (Adam Mair), but Hlavac seems like an all or nothing kind of guy.

Hlavac was definately all or nothing when the Canucks had him. One of the highest scoring teams in the league, and he went on an extended goal-less streak...I'd steer clear
