IMO PG has an agreement with Price but isn't announcing it because I guarantee that Price is getting calls regarding offer sheets. I wouldn't be surprised to see Kostitsyn and a defenseman traded knowing Willie Mitchell has us as one of his 4 teams. That would put Eller on the top 2 lines to play with bonafide players. I don't know what we'd get back in the trade (like a 3rd line center and a prospect) but that's what makes sense to me as it stands right now.
Do you have a link to any of this or are just guessing? Willie mitchell has us as one of his 4 teams? He's UFA, is he really going to limit himself to 4 teams?
