Flip prospal into a late first (Galiev/Tinordi) and I consider that a smart move going forward. He could be our version of KT who let himself be rented by the Blues year after year but still came back every summer.
Yep, this is what I hope happens. For the remainder of the year his cap hit is what, like $200,000? And he's going at almost a point per game clip. Any playoff team that hopes to contend can use the guy. I'm sure one of them will offer a first for him
