He had more points than any Blue but Stewart in the regular season and more per game than any Blue in the postseason (granted, playing with Malkin).
So I could see it being a pretty good fit, if the price isn't too high.
It would potentially give us seven top-six wingers (Iginla, Oshie, Steen, Perron, Stewart, Schwartz, Tarasenko), but considering we don't exactly know what we're getting out of Tarasenko (and to a lesser degree Schwartz, Stewart and Perron), a bit of flexibility isn't a bad thing.
LOL why would we need 7 top six wingers when you can only use 4 granted with us we more or less run 3 2nd lines. So that is 6. Also our budget is uncertain until we sign all of our RFAs. We also have Jaskin and Rattie who could make pushes for our wing spots. Until our RFAs are signed adding a winger is pretty pointless or until we trade away a winger.
We need a center not wingers the Sun article is laughable. It's so misinformed you think they would at least do a little fact checking.
