And, on the chance that we don't re-sign Fro, Vinny P could be a serviceable stop-gap (not the best case scenario but insurance nonetheless).
Yah, I was thinking the same thing. He's not a Terry Murray clone but he's a good winger and he's proven time and again in his contract years he steps up. To be fair he might have been offered a deal and if I were in his shoes I'd rather play for the Rangers than the Kings in his scenario. He has a much better chance for success and recognition playing in Manhattan. With a big year he could hit the jackpot again next summer. Vinny also has ties to Tortorella. Signed a 4 year 14 million dollar deal with Tampa last summer and they bought him out after 1 year. Ouch.
