So let's hear it.

Who is a FA the preds could have signed and beat out 5 other teams money wise that you would be happy with?

Would you be happy with Horton who will not even be playing until December or after. A guy who has had injury issues and has missed a ton of time even though he is a top 6 forward? Would you be happy giving a guy with his history more money and years than Columbus did?

Are you going to be ok giving Clarkson the money he got to a 30 year old winger who has got hot 1 freaking time and scored over 17 goals in a season? Where you willing to give him more money and years than Toronto?

Come on who would make you happy and what kind of money would make you happy giving them?
the only thing that happened yesterday that I wish had gone our way was the Bobby Ryan trade.

Ottawa sent what appears to be the equivalent of Bourque and Watson and a 1st for Ryan.

I would bet money that Poile was bidding for Ryan... not sure what the deciding factor was... although if I had to guess Anaheim was probably wanting FF from us and Poile wouldnt go there
