To me trying to sign Chara as a UFA at 6.5-7mill per year (and lose no players) would make more sense than offering Souray, Ryder and a 1st rounder for Pronger as some suggested. Assuming we have the cap space to sign a Chara
Id rather overpay for Chara then lose valuable assets for a guy that might turn out and ask for a trade because his wife donsen't like the city and the cold winter..
