I'd rather have Stuart and Grossman at 6.50m+ than Suter at 6.50m+.

That said, I don't know how keen Detroit is on letting Stuart walk.

Probably at the same price. So your line-up needs Jagr.

I just put out what Homer said. We probably will need to move some players if we get Suter. As much as I don't want to admit it, it might have to be done

Im only posting about what I saw on twitter. If the GM feels like we will need to move salary in order to fit Suter, then I believe it. Again the quote
I think re-signing Jagr at this point is a waste of 3.00m.

1. Briere can't stay at center forever.

2. If Jagr is re-signed we have 10 (possibly 11) top 9 forwards in our lineup.

3. Wellwood is certainly NHL-ready, and while he can't play a checking line role, he certainly puts our potential top 9 forwards at 12 with Jagr:

Hartnell - Giroux - Read
vanRiemsdyk - Schenn - Voracek
Simmonds - Briere - Jagr
Talbot - Couturier - Wellwood

Long story short. I loved Jagr. It's time to move on.
