Lehtinen is not a UFA this Summer by a vast majority of accounts. I would also stay away from Jovo. Obviously he's a world-class player, but to me, he isn't what we need. He's gonna command a big salary, and he has injury issues, so just as I feel Samsonov is not an ideal fit, I don't think Ed is either.

I'm an advocate of bringing in Arnott, though not at "ANY" cost of course. The most I would want to pay for Jay would be in the $4million range, so that would have to be enough to get it done, or else I'd look at other options.

I'm also not sure why so many want Langebrunner here. He's a Bulis with more consistency, and who is likely willing to accept a bigger variety of roles, but if it's gonna cost $2 or more million per year to bring him in, I don't see the necessity at all.
