He has another year at $3.5 million too.
The only teams that would be interested are teams that are desperate for offense, since he does have offensive skills; this is just a bad year.
I think part of the problem wa Carbo insisting that he play with Kovy, and that does NOT work when two players want the puck. Kovy's game is mis-direction with the puck and Sammy's game is speed with the puck and never the two shall meet.
I agree with many that Sammy looked good with Bonk, but the problem is that is a checking line and Sammy doesn't like to backcheck nor work on the boards to clear the puck.
I think we'll be lucky to dump his salary for a 2nd tier defensive prospect and a mid round pick.
If we pick up Acoiun, it will be the end of signing Souray and I do NOT want that!!!
Gainey should try to deal him to SJ for another but slightly cheaper underachiever (this year): Mark Bell. He would be the perfect fit on a third line with his size and willingness to throw his body around. Ans Samsonov would be soooo happy to play again with Thornton.
