oh...i dont think its a pipedream at all. comments from mcphee indicate that he is sees the need to have more experience on the roster than what they've had.

that said, it will be up to the player to walk. mcphee will handle knuble and arnott like he handled fedorov. as long as they are willing to sign a one year contract, he will keep them as he did fedorov. if they insist on a two year deal, he will let them walk as he did with fedorov.

hannan's situation is effected by poti and possibly schultz. it could be that mcphee decides that with green, carlson and alzner on the d crew and orlov coming that he has to move schultz in order to keep the experience level where he wants it.

i suspect that knuble will take the one year. vogel has said that knuble wants to play another year. year by year makes sense. arnott may be less interested in year by year. if he wants two years, mcphee lets him walk and plugs in eakin.
