From what I've heard, Hextall and Holmgren have very similar views/styles, whatever you want to call it. It's very possible he'd make some changes, but I doubt he'd come in and shake things up in a huge way.

What could we get for a return on Timonen this year? I'd imagine his value is something like a good prospect/first round pick. I remember last year, it was rumored that Boston wanted Briere and was willing to deal Krug for him. Maybe he's still on the block.

I'd be really interested in dealing with the Ducks. With Fowler, Lindholm, and Beauchemin already on the team, you'd think we might be able to get one of Theodore or Vatanen. But would they even be interested in Timonen? I don't watch enough Ducks games to know how he'd fit in over there.

Maybe something Like, Downie for Sbisa?
