If NYR offered him a decent contract I'm pretty sure he would take it. He has spent quite a few years on a high salary in Russia - it would be easier for him to take a smaller contract now. Especially for a team from a city like New York (don't think he would replace a high salary in St. Petersburg with a small one in a place like Edmonton).

I guess you might be right. He would be perfect on a producing 3rd line in New York. And he could very well cover as a 2nd line C when needed.

Not sure if AV will build a "producing 3rd line" though. I'm a Canucks fan and in Vancouver he always totally relied on his top 6 to come up with the goals. He won't ever have a couple of Sedins in New York though - so he might change things a bit in terms of how to set up his lines.

In any case - a smart GM needing a talented 3C based in a decent city could very well find a excellent deal in Thoresen this summer.
