I agree but most of them are still better than what we have (other than Markov).
Just for the fun of it :
Lidstrom : I agree with you , there are no chances that we land him.He is a wing for life imo
Chara : I would definitively take a chance on him if he did not want so much money.There is not doubt in my mind that we could blue build our blue line around him (and Markov).The only problem is that it's no secret that he will be looking for the max this summer.That comes back to what i said : Are we ready to pay the price for him ? I don't think so
Redden : Assuming that he don't want 5m or more (which is almost impossible) i wouldn't mind him at all.However, he would not even be close to be the no1 priority on my list.There are better alternatives out there imo.
Jovanovski : See Redden
Blake : Depending once again of how much he wants , i think that he would be the best choice of all the players you mentionned.No he's not getting younger but he still got 51pts this year and was not bad at all for the Avs during the playoffs.Bring size , leadership , experience and some offense.Komi could learn a lot from him imo.I would not sign him for more than 2 years though.
Arnott : I'm not really interested in him either.The only reason i may want him is because he would be an upgrade over Ribeiro and because he's one of the only decent center available this year but that's pretty much it.He does have size and is right handed which is also s good thing i guess but overall i'm just not sold on him either.
Samsonov : No arguments from me there.I completely agree with you
So overall i pretty much agree with what you were saying.The only difference being in how we perceive some of these players.In the end it still comes back to : "Do we need ??" and "Can we afford ??"
