I don't mind if we re-sign Whitney, and even if we give him market dollars. What I will be upset about, is if we give him a) more than two years, b) any kind of no-trade guarantee (especially in the final year of the deal) or c) an automatic slot on Staal's left wing with no chance of anybody else *earning* that spot.
Whitney by himself isn't going to kill the "youth movement." I think you need a good mix of youth and vets. Of the guys we currently have under contract, Brindy is the only one over 31 (Cole, Samsonov and TomKo are 31).
One other thing that will hack me off. Our three worst contracts (Cole, Samsonov, Brindy) are finished after this season. If JR does anything to kill his flexibility (like he did last summer), I will personally lead the revolt.
