2- if we take on such a big contract, does that leave enough money to address our most pressing need, which remains an offensive centerman to complement Koivu
But all thing considered, for Ryder and Zednik, I'd pull the trigger; but not for Souray.
You brought a VERY good point. The all-mighty money. Are we REALLY willing to pay a WINGER that much when we have plenty of scoring wingers coming in the system? Are we REALLY willing to pay a WINGER that much when are biggest need is another center? Are we REALLY willing to a pay a WINGER that much when our #1 D-MAN, Markov, will be a UFA at the end of the season and will probably ask for a lot of money? Considering all that, no deal for me.
