I'd take him in a heartbeat on a wing here.If the wheels are in motion to dump Cullen or Legwand and Wilson to center it makes sense, I'd pay a million more than Legwand for him.

(Legwand will get 5 million on the thin open market for a 2-3 year deal)

hypothetically

top six-Wilson, Fisher, Forsberg, Hornquist, Callahan, Smith
bottom six-Spaling, Gaustad, Bourque, Nystrom, Cullen/Legwand, pick a winger-Beck, Sissons (moved into the convo) Clune, Watson

That group looks like a 175 goal group to me (assuming the kids continue to develop). and add in another 55-60 or so from the D and it is roughly a 240 goal team which is plenty of offense. For reference sake, the pens the last full season led the league with 273. And also 3 goals a game over 82 games is 246, which I think is a good goal for any team. Only 3 clubs did it the last full season
