Spaling has a big body and I think he is less shy of the rough stuff than goose. And way less injury prone. And way less money.

I know we aren't replacing spaling with goose, but it's even worse if you compare spaling to nystrom or Hendricks.

Spaling is hands down a better hockey player than either of those two, and for a fraction of the cost, poile is crazy to want one of nystrom or Hendricks in lineup over spaling.


But....

Maybe spaling will have to go, because he is probably looking at how much better he is than nystrom, gaustad, and Hendricks, is seeing what poile paid them boys, and now spals is probably ok arbitration asking for $5.5 million a season.
