While true if he could be had for a mil after a good camp invite hes worth the chance. We have a couple options to make room for a player that has played top 6. MAny will not like the options but if it makes a better team put FF in Milwaukee and use as a first call up. Beck could spend another period as well. Smith could be waived at the end of camp if he does not show dramatic improvement. Spaling could be scratched to make room. There are options, at this point this team can not afford not to take a chance on at least one forward. The group currently signed will not get the team where it needs to be. We once again face a training camp and the start of a season with a glut of 3d and 4th line talent. We have little proof that Wilson or Borque will excel on top lines. Potential yes but no proof, the same can be said for FF. Putting FF in a must perform situation may well ruin him. Perhaps it is just getting close to the start of the season but I abhor the thought of going into March with most of the people here "TANKING" for a pick. The time is now to make an adjustment, the few FA's left will be in Europe and we will be saddled with players that are unproven or not ready or playing on a line that is above there talent.
