It would be pretty sweet getting the brother connection with Andrei and Sergei as well...but would this be our GIANT move to lobby Weber and Suter to sign long-term? I don't think adding two UFAs convinces them.

There isn't a better fit than Jeff Carter IMO.

EDIT:Sorry I didn't see in the proposed deal that AK would be signed. I would pull the trigger on that deal if AK was signed to a reasonable dollar ($4 mil a year max)
Emelin is RFA and this is his first season in the NA. So I assume he is only getting better...
