Sure we would. Since you're the expert on value, how do you rate Minnesota's offense currently and their need for offensive weapons? Do you think they'd rather keep an RFA back up goaltender behind a Vezina candidate who was just re-signed at over $6m a year when the back up is going to likely push $2m plus?

Would $8m on goaltending for a team that needs offense sound like solid asset management to you?

What about a team that has a surplus of offense looking for goaltending and defensive upgrades holding onto their talented but excess forwards like Lupul?

Lupul as a 25g/50p forward would be getting around $4m for whatever team we traded him to as an RFA this offseason had we not signed him to a deal. So the fact that the Flyers signed him and not the team we potentially would have traded him to hurts his value that much?

Some people really need to think about the crap they spew.
