How does the word "cheap" play in to him signing here? Where are these "good signs" that he would take <$2mil? Because that's all he's honestly worth for his production, age, etc. And in what world would be be in our top-6..?
He would be on the 3rd line, nothing more.
I'd rather save the pick
and have it be useful as a pick itself or getting someone who isn't Antropov. I don't think he's bad, but he's not worth trading anything remotely of worth for at this point.
I concur... keep the picks... choose more Swedes - for a small country, they sure know how to develop talent.
