Why obtain Laich at the expense of Samuelsson? Sammy had an awful season yet still put up 50 points. I don't see him as a big enough upgrade (that's assuming he's an upgrade) for the added cap hit (500K to $1 million). And there's no guarantee that Laich will find chemistry with the team - don't have that problem with Sammy.
