Didn't see Cameron Mann on the list, I thought he had a pretty good AHL season last year. Did he sign in Europe?
Anyway, I'm not certain the guys available are way better than what they have, but if Lowe likes someone on that list maybe he'll make a deal with one of the teams drafting at the top.
I'm going to have to go ahead and disagree with you on Fichaud - I don't think it's a coincidence he can't stick with any team. I think Trnka and Simpson could be good for some teams though - Simpson's one tough hombre, if not the fastest on the ice.
I always kinda liked Mann too.
Interesting that the Leafers left Green exposed but kept Renberg.
I can't see anybody really coming Edmonton's way except for maybe Trnka though.
Hrm, what about Steve Kariya, any chance of him resurrecting his career? Of course, I'm sure Lowe could have him from the Devils fairly cheaply, unless they want him on their farm team.
