Engqvist is due to make $900k next season. Halpern made $600k this season, Darche made $500k. Phoenix made the playoffs with Eric Belanger making $750k, Taylor Pyatt making $1m, Vernon Fiddler making $1.1m. Tampa has Dominic Moore at $1.1m and Sean Bergenheim at $700k.
Seems to me that by going with an established NHL'er at 4C, it won't cost much more, if any. And we won't be forced to go with Fortier or make a trade when injuries hit.
Yeah that's a good point. I guess in the end i don't really mind if Halpern comes back. i just want to Gauthier to put an emphasis on locking up younger, faster more skilled D.
