Also I stand by the deal I proposed:
Zibanejad, 1st 2013 and Bishop for Yandle. It works for both teams.
Tavares is 22 and signed for 5 more years @ 5.5.
Giroux is 25, signed for 1 more year @ 3.75, and is an RFA after it expires.
Spezza is 29, signed for 2 more years @ 7, and has a history of back issues. The two younger, cheaper, healthier #1 centers just entering their prime are clearly more valuable assets.
