3 million for Hagman. Sounds like an over-payment to me. Let's talk about moving bodies while we add one. Instead of just stacking them on top of each other. Someone like Steckel, Winchester or Clarkson are good targets to me. Especially the first two. A physical center that can win draws, lead by example and leave his strap on ice night after night is what we really need. I like the looks of Sutherby and Fiddler as well. I have a good feeling that VV will make a good case for the 3/4 C next year just based on his ability to play at an NHL pace and actually excel at it during pre-season. He brings the tools we currently lack. An additional vet would be nice. I would personally add O'Marra to the roster over Hagman for various reasons.

English is my primary language by the way. What about you?
