Dont mind this signing if its for the fourth line to alternate with Reasoner (whoever is playing better). However, I would have much rather had Tim Connolly. I think people on this board are being way too critical of Tim. Look at his last five seasons...he has had 210 or so points in around 280 something games...how many guys on our current roster can say that? And on top of that, he has been relatively healthy the last few seasons. Connolly would have been the perfect one-year stopgap second line center and is a great passer, so you put him with Grabner and Boyes and I bet you Connolly is a 50-60 point player (in a full season obviously). Then you slide Franz down to third line where he should be. It makes too much sense, so the Isles wouldnt do it and I am sorry but payroll should not be an issue. With how low our payroll is, 2 million dollars for one year of a player that can still average 50 points a season even in a down year, should be a no-brainer.
