If souray was healthy I would do the deal.
Then again, I don't see why Edmonton would do the deal just to save a few hundred K...i was under the impression that they wanted to rebuild....exchanging 1 bad contract for another doesnt really help them all that much.
good pts. No way the Rangers take on Souray's contract without moving Rozy though and we all know Redden is not going anywhere unless the teams exchange Horcoff for Redden which may be good for both players. Thing is I think Horcoff has another yr at 5.5.
I really am hoping Sather can come up with a Rozy , Lisin for a UFA Dman and Winger
