If Babchuk goes to the Rangers or Devils and signs a 2 year deal at $1.4 million a season and Howson does nothing to address our PP leading into camp, I would be so pissed. $1.4 million to potentially fix our PP and have a better shot at going back to the playoffs seems too good to be true.

How often are you going to be able to acquire a 25 year old, 6'5", right handed shooting defenseman, with 5 years of NHL experience, that scored 16 goals the season before for a mid-level prospect? Geeeez.
