Also, there's never really been any word if Gainey and company are even interested in Korneev. I believe he was drafted a year or two before Gainey took the helm, which could be the reason he's never been brought over.

He's a great player though, no doubt. Easily a top-4 type guy.
My only question is at what cost? 3M-4M?

If he can replace Hammer for 3M rather then 5.5M then I am all for bringing him over...
