absolutely....i agree...if he is better than what we have and we have made our team better because of this move, then awesome...that is very much what is important and what i have been saying all along....on ice value not payroll value.

my only point is what he makes is not relevant to that debate....

my unrelated observation is that we have not addressed the real weaknesses of this team this off season, but hopefully a young guy or two makes the step.


wpgsilver, i might agree if the cap was at all an issue.


anyways...i dont want to beat it to death (might be too late)...thanks for the good debate guys.....lets just start playing for goodness sake!...i've been waiting 15 years!
