i could pretty much go on forever about how ridiculous this is, but the type of player you're suggesting to us (34/35+, making almost 6 million dollars) is the type of player we're trying to get rid of. like i said before we have NO cap space at all. if it wasn't for LTIR we would be over already. we're going to have to get rid of briere+ to be under the cap next season to start with so it just isn't going to happen.
yes timonen is overpaid, but at least he only has 1 year left. no couturier is not overrated, he's a 20 year old kid who has been stuck playing with 4th liners for most of the season. struggling your second year in the league on a team that has been pretty awful for most of the season doesn't suddenly make you a bust. the thing about kids is they're going to be inconsistent for a while and you actually have to have some patience in developing them. looking at his stats this year gives no indication at all whatsoever about the type of player he's going to be in the future.
just because it makes sense for montreal doesn't mean it does for philly. he would be better for a team that's going for it now, not a team that needs to rebuild their defense.
