Dian would have been an almost perfect addition, just not at the rumored price tag/term, so probably good that we missed that boat.
I really wonder what the habs legit offer was, could they really have valued him at 7+M$ for four years?
Seems crazy, even if buffalo had that offer on the table.
I wonder if this mean MB pursues another UFA (arnott, if he is willing to play mostly at W, would be a good short term fit IMO), or if he decides to roll the dice and hope that 1-2 of Leblanc-palushaj-Gallagher-geoffrion-gally(if he's too good to go back to jrs & habs decide using him on the W for a year-or moving an incumbent to the w, is a better option) show enough in pre-season/camp to adequately fill our top 6 holes.
And there is always the option of Armstrong-Prust-moen all ending up in top 9 roles, which might work out well enough short term (perhaps just long enough for some of those young guys to build up enough confidence in Hamilton to make a mid-season jump)
Very interested to see their Approach, patient or aggressive, youth driven or veteran band-aid....
