In reality I am somewhat leary of Kraft..... coming of one good season about 20 goals, 6"3' 214 and 25 yrs old....agent shopping him around to Russian teams....who does that remind you of [maybe somewhat unfairly]...

He was tendered a $1.028 million qualifying offer in the summer of 2004, but never signed or filed for arbitration, hence his Group 2 status now ... and his availability to Russian teams. To sign him him might take $1.0mill - $1.35 mill.

I wouldn't give up Klein for him, I would have given up Hutch for him, we have already given away our 3rd in 2006 for Markov....we have gotten a 4th from Atlanta for Hnidy.

I think I would offer the 4th in 2006 we got from Atlanta plus Zanon, Pivko, or Gamache, but that is about as high a I would go.....if Pens walked away, I wouldn't feel bad....and just keep our line in the water .....
