Avery: I can see your point, but don't mind him being off the team. Not a huge fan of his game. He is a completely unnecessary distraction both on the ice and in the locker room.
Jokinen: Tell me how we fit a $4.5 million cap hit on the third line of this team.
Prospal: I'd agree that he improves the third line. But again - he has a cap hit of $2.5 million; that doesn't leave a ton of - if any - room. And regardless, he's 38. That makes this team older - and while it maybe helps for a year or two, its not the direction I'd really like to see the team head.
Christensen: Meh. He was fine in his role, but there are plenty of other players out there I'd rather see Sather pursue for a 3C role.
