The problem is that you need to make a good fit with his linemates(which they did in his other teams and the national team), that puzzle isnt he worth in our org, he is also useless in other aspects like fo,pk, you must make a really good difference to make it worth it. Some teams maybe have a natural fit for him without doing to much changes. Its pretty strange that in our own forum, he has the lowest value. i saw a calgary blog about a month ago, where they suggest taking a shot with him, the wings forum isnt aginst to give it a shot either.

I think and hopes that a 2 round pick will do it, thats why they gave him a q offer in first place, why bother to do that with lower picks.
Calgary Flames would sign gumby if they thought he could bag a few pts. Maybe you missed the memo but they have an upcoming need for scoring talent. Much different situation than here.
