I would like Vinny L. Like everyone above has mentioned there are issues that get in the way like having to over pay, carrying too many big veteran contacts or taking ice time from other prospects long-term.
We could always take the counter-intuitive approach and offer a one year deal though. The logic is that we can offer a competitive salary compared to most longer deals whilst simultaneously not committing to a contract that would be tough in the future. A one year risk is next to no risk. If both parties are happy with each other we can always extend and if not we can guarantee an extra first next year by trading him at the deadline.
Why might he be interested? He gets another UFA payday next year.
