I also don't see him taking less money to sign with the Avs. He'll get less ice time and play a lesser role here. I believe we were one of the teams interested in him when he became a free agent but he chose to sign with the Leafs instead. He is also represented by Don Meehan and if he has another 45-50 point season, the starting point in negotations might be $3.5-4M/yr.
The Meehan thing could be an issue haha. I still think we'd have a better chance then anyone else at signing him if he hit free agency, and as a 3C he'd be alright for us.

Then again if Sgarbossa ends up doing well this year we really wont need anymore C's regardless of what happens with our Big 3.
