all i was pointing out is that out of every one of the UFA forwards, he is the best option....im excited over ANY UFA this year and the thing tat scares me is that sather NEEDS to sign some to fill some pretty big holes(#1/2 defenseman, 1st line wing, 2nd line wing, and 4/5/6 defenseman and that is if potter is ready) and that in this market, the best options would most likely be one of the following:
malone at 4-5 million(way overpayment)
ryder at 3.5-4.5 million(way overpayment)
huselius at 4-5 million(way overpayment)
liles at 3+(overpayment for a 4-6 defenseman)
orpik at 3-5 million(overpayment for a 3-5 defenseman)
redden at 6-7 million(overpayment for a 2-3)
campbell at 7-8(overpayment for a pp specialist)


basically the problem with everyone on that list is that they are all one dimensional and overpaid....there are no good overall players this year like gomez and drury....and they need to fill HUGE holes that they cant fill now, but they might be able to in a couple years....which scares me even more because all of those players will want 4 or more years
