At that point with two spots open a guy like Klein, Meszaros, or whomever is on the outs with their current club is a better bet than those two on our roster.

Can we go back to my point for just a minute. Obviously it's pure speculation but what does everyone think is an acceptable price Niewendyk and company will take for Robidas? At best are we looking at a guy like Pirri and a 2nd/3rd from Chicago? Would that be enough? Could you pry a kid like Robak out of Florida? They've wanted NHL ready talent but I can't imagine there are a lot of teams who will give up a younger guy for Robidas unless that guy doesn't fit their timeline, ie he's a 1-3 years away. Unless Gagliardi has turned Joe's stance on immediate help trading him seems like a long shot at best.
Did somebody offer Pirri and a 2nd/3rd? I take Pirri straight up for Robidas.

As far as FLA, I don't think he waives for them, and I don't think they need him unless Garrison leaves, in which case I wouldn't mind seeing his UFA rights come back.
