That defense is extremely solid but would cost us one of our top nine forwards maybe. If it happens that Jagr doesn't come back, then it maybe could be done. I don't know. I am just going off of what Homer said. They obviously think if they land Suter, they will need to move some salary.

I know we are talking about Brad Stuart too. Detroit player who used to play with the Kings and Sharks. His home is out west and there are all kind of reports he wants to go back there to finish playing closer to home.
If you mean Jagr is the top 9 forward not coming back to allow us to land Suter without expunging more money on defense or trading away our young top 9 forwards...

Then yes, we are giving up a top 9 forward.

I've long come to the conclusion that Jagr should not be here next season. It's nothing personal, but we have plenty of cheaper and younger offensive options while having a hole to fill defensively.
