- Likely could be gotten for relatively cheap

Cons:
- Age: 33 (how many "good" years does he have left?)
- Contract length
- Question marks re: whether he can rise to the challenge in big games (Olympics notwithstanding)
- Boston is in our division
- Contract will likely be untradable within 3-4 years
- Uncertainties re: cap circumventive contracts in next CBA negotiations

Dado: You are NOT getting the #5 pick. Just like Vancouver's not giving him away for scraps. Meet us somewhere in the middle.
Somewhere in the middle IMO would be Franson and a pick. They're not touching the 5th overall thats for sure, you should read the Canucks board LOL so high strung and oblivious, they honestly believe they can get the 5th pick.
