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.
Have to disagree with this. For example, Filppula is a responsible 2-way player and I bet if you gave him the same minutes Flash had last year he'd be close to similar stats. The difference is Filppula can play the other end too.
Not saying Filppula would be worth the money either, if he's really looking for 4+.
Versteeg really needs to go thou. Don't even care about the return that much, as long as that 4.4 million bum is off the roster for good.
