i sure hope not......something keeps repeating in my head from a recent Leipold interview....he said that we would "be adding quality players that 'fans in this market' would recognize"
With that quote in mind, as for center position, the names that come to mind are Demetra and Lindros in the current UFA pool.
Maybe someone else is not going to be qualified that I am not thinking of.....but I just don't see Zhamnov fitting in with the Pred culture....and Gratton is the posterboy of underachievment.....Turgeon is a floater and soft.....Allison is possible, but risky and certainly not a 'household name' pick up that would make the casual fan go "wow."
Maybe I am just reading too much into it...
