If he is available, do you want him back, and what would you be willing to give up to get him?
for me, I'd wanted him 100%. Even if it means having a D that costs around 23M, i think he brings the perfect package of what we are missing back there (PP Shot, physical play/toughness, leadership).
it's not great for us from a cap pov (we add ~3.5M), but with the flexibility we have this summer given all our UFA's, we can make it work.
Edm gets two young dynamic wingers to play with Gagner/Cogliano, and a potential #1 goalie solution, plus the added cap relief (perhaps to make a run at JBo?)
for us, next season, our D would easily be one of the top 2-3 units in the league:
if Gainey can get Koivu/Tanguay/Kovalev to re-sign for a little less than their previous deals, we should still be able to fit all three
Tanguay- Koivu- Kovalev
Higgins- Plekanec- O'Sullivan
Max Pac- Lapierre- Lats
Stewart- Metro- Kosto
