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.
I think your analysis is pretty on point on Flash but a bit harsh. He's the best finisher on our team and is good for 20+ goals, stays healthy, and is a key piece on our PP which was a huge part of our success last season. He's somewhat one dimensional but we need offense.
A first seems completely within reason. I wouldn't give him up for that though.
It's not like we can spend his money better. There isn't much we can go after. He's not close to the worst contract either. Probably overpaid by 500K.
