Flash is a 50-60 point guy. He's got a fair contract at 4.5 million.
If you wanted a legitimate first line guy he's going to cost probably 6.5/7 million a season
, at least in free agency and that's on the low end if you compare it to what Getzlaf and Perry just signed for.
Or you can draft one/trade for one.
4.5 for a one-dimensional, floating powerplay specialist is overpayment. Ask any Capitals fan that's seen him plenty of times before or any general hockey fan and they'd say the same things.
This team shouldn't be paying a one-dimensional 50-point forward 4.5. He only put up 61 last year because he got increased time that he'd never get playing for a good team.
After the hot stretch of 25-30 games, that Fleischmann-Weiss-Versteeg line did a whole lot of nothing last year. Both he and Versteeg are overrated.
I wonder if we could get another 1st for Flash. I'd do it in a heartbeat.
