Plus would you rather have to overpay for an older, free agent scorer WITH a full nmc(see:Briere, Danny) or keep the younger scorer you have at a better price with limited ntc's?

I'm not a his biggest fan, but there's one thing we'll never complain about, and that is his contract. He scores 37-42 goals consistantly, and I'll be real happy.
He takes so much **** from fans but that's twice now that he's given up money to help the team. People say he's gutless and has no character but he's proven he's got both. Same goes for Richards and Roo, all 3 are team first players and I'm hoping Leino gets signed for a good hit over the next few days. I'm loving this team!
