I'd be happy to see him settle at home in Ottawa, but really, with the additions of Conacher and Turris, they don't need any more smurfs....
I'm pretty sure he'd only get 2/3rds of that remaining 5 mil but yeah I get your point. If the rumors are true and Briere declined to waive for the Bruins who were offering Krug plus I will forever hate Briere. I know that's ridiculous but who ever said sports fans had to be reasonable?

Btw Turris is 6'1" and close to 200lbs. He'll learn to use his body better (cause he's too soft now) but I wouldn't consider him a smurf.
