i think everyone should just forget about signing chara. we can hope, but every other team w/ cap space will want him and several will be able to offer more. and ottawa will almost certainly re-sign him.

of course, the same thing could happen w/ redden. :/

maybe you remember the draft--muckler said he drafted lee b/c ottawa needed another Dman after the loss of either redden or chara. basically all the ottawa fans i've heard from prefer to keep chara over redden. earlier this yr, there was a poll on the ottawa board and most said keep chara lose redden. both meszaros and lee are fairly similar to redden and could be seen as replacements.

OTOH, chara's mobility when he's 35 could be a big problem.

signing jovo=big mistake. many vcr fans consider "special ed" their 3rd best Dman after ohlund and salo. he's schneider on steroids--bigger and tougher but more expensive w/ even more stupid plays.
