Leaving him in the middle 6, which he'll be surpassed by Patches, DD, Gallagher and Galchenyuk. Therefore: 3rd line at best.
That's what I said. Spacegoat. What's the problem?
The cap is going down to 64m, there is no way Gionta AND Perry fit in - no way.
You're ignoring reality. You can't have a top6 with 3 players under 5'8" nor a 5m third-liner. End of story.
If you can't refute the arguments, you're not worth arguing with. If you add Perry and don't remove anyone else - Gionta doesn't fit at all. If you can't see that, then you don't really understand to much, now do you?
Did what? Gionta's my spacegoat for 2013.
It's not very confusing to look at capgeek and look at some of potential rosters posted here that there is about 8m available to sign Perry after buying out Kaberle and only losing Ryder from the current team.
Next year Gionta plays out his contract and is most likely not resigned and if so at nothing near 5m.
