I'll say it again, there is no way we can table a better package than Philly but if Florida is really keen to move him to the West they don't have a ton of options cap wise. I'm surprised we haven't heard mention of Calgary or Edmonton being in the mix, I have to assume they have too many cap issues.

I'm just really not interested in giving up cheap, young, reasonably signed talent for an UFA. There HAS to be a contract in place if Gillis does this. Is Jay-bo really much better than Bieksa who is signed at 3.75 for two more seasons? Or how about Edler at 3.25 for 4 more years? He could be a complete steal by next year the way he's played the last dozen or so games.

Very unsure of how I feel about this.
