Does he want to be a Wing and doesn't particularly care if he plays right away or maxes out his bonuses? If so, then the Wings have a pretty good chance. That's just about the only scenario where I see him signing here.

Edmonton is my bet. He'll play right away, pile up points with a dynamic young forward corps, and possibly be on a contender in the next few years if they can finish rounding out the rest of the club.
He'd also have to live in Edmonton...
