I would like to see us trade him while he still has some perceived value.
I would say that we expect Grachev to be a top 6 while we expect a guy like Hagelin to be a 3rd liner thus if its a competiton between the two I think Torts goes with Hagelin since he would be more defensively reliable and like Stepan and McD he dominated College recently.
I am on the fence about singnig Fedotenko. I think he did great for us but I rather see a kid in. The way I view LW is Dubinsky top obviously but then I keep Wolski and Avery for another year and mix in one of Hagelin in Grachev for the final spot.
I see why people say WW and Avery for a buy out but I think buy outs are a waste if they can fit under the cap and just expire the contracts next yr
Drury shoud be the only buy out cause they will need every penny that saves(3.5 mil or so) on a RFA or money towards Brad Richards
