Filppula would be a good player to sign for a stepping stone for our prospects, as Backlund and Monahan/Lindholm will not be ready to play 1st line minutes. I wouldn't mind signing him for 2/3 years worth 4 million per or so. Also, there are rumors going around that Filppula will test the free agency market.
I don't hate Filppula, but if he'd sign for 2-3 years at 4 million he already would've with the wings. I'd like him at 2 years 8 million, but I doubt he'd take that to come to the Flames. I'd be looking at Chicago. They need to get Stalberg, Leddy, Kruger, Bickell, Roszival and a back-up done for around 7 million. Basically they can keep one or two of those players and pick up league minimums for the rest OR they can keep most of them and deal Frolik/Bolland for peanuts. They'll probably buy-out Montador to free up 1.5 as well.
