I wouldnt be so sure of that. i could see a team like the Rangers, Blackhawks, Kings, Blues look at Kimmo as that last piece between them and a cup. With his contract coming off the books next season he becomes even more attractive. I could see a team parting with a very good piece for him. Kimmo and a 2nd for Bernier? Kimmo for Jake Allen ? Kimmo for Mcilrath plus? This shortened season is going to give teams the impression that they are able to compete. IN such a condensed season there will be very few sellers and if we are one of them Kimmo is going to be at many teams wish list. Briere not so much because of the years he has left.
