Interesting. I would actually welcome both of them with open arms if that deal is in any way connected to us. Whitney is a given, but Wallin is interesting. He has an almost comical career. He has never scored more than 10 points in a season, but he has reached exactly 10 four times. He has also only played more than 70 games once in his career out of 8 NHL seasons, which makes the 10 points thing even more interesting, because everytime he was on pace to obliterate his season high totals, he would end up injured or something.
They are both UFAs at the end of the season, Whitney making $3.55 million @ age 37, and Wallin making $1.725 million @ age 34. My guess is that Wallin would be a replacement for O'Donnell should he stay, if we are indeed the destination for these guys.
