I would prefer to not sign him, we really need to give place for guys like Perezhogin and Kostitsyn, they are now 23 and 21, we need to give them a try on the first 2 lines (well Kost can still wait a little bit). What we really need is a second center, we have enough talented wings (Kovalev, Higgins, Perezhogin, Ryder, Kostitsyn) that are ready and some other talented player that will be ready in 1 to 3 years (Latendresse, Grabovski, S. Kostitsyn and even D'Agostini could make the lineup one day.)
If we sign Samsonov, we will delay the developpment of our young players that will form the core team in a close future.
