The only problem with this is that Straka has made it clear that he's only willing to sign one year deals. He's been flirting with the idea of going home to the Czech Republic and wants to leave his options open.
Straka is a hard worker and has really helped keep this team in contention with his offense this year, but as others have said, signing him is a sign that Sather thinks that more of the same will somehow win him another Stanley Cup. I don't see a big change in management's philosophy any time soon.
