Haven't seen it mentioned but Chimmer has only missed 2 games in 4 seasons in Columbus. He's durable and not inept as many of you think. He's very good on the PK, responsible defensively and can play an almost any line. He does have the ability to put in 20+ goals as a 3rd liner and handle spot duty on the 2nd.
I suspect this rules out the resigning of Vybes and only cuts $875K into the $14M or so we'll have to sign players in the off season. You know Voracek, Brassard and Brule (barring a trade) will be back as well as Nik, Rick, Modin, Boll, Novotny and Malhotra (possible trade here too but I don't see it).
I'm guessing they use the money for 2 solid additions and make a trade for the center we desparately need (Marleau?).
Modin X Nash
Zherdev Brassard Brule
Chimmer Novotny Voracek
Boll Malhotra Lindstrom
I'd love to see the X be Marleau, Horton or Vermette (put Brassard on the first and Vermette on the 2nd?)
Realistically we need a better transition game and spend the money on D-men who can skate and move the puck.
