jr publicly states he has passed on two offers and is moving on for now. same day as babs gets sent to albany and kaberle comes back. he says they were too pricey. interesting. im guessing it was the blackhawks, and either nyi or edm. if it was two pricey, it had to include more than just an extra d-man.

if we got samsanov on re-entry we'd only pay half of that salary. not saying i want him, just there are possibilities. if jr think the other offers were too expensive and he can get sammy on a discount it could happen. sammy is very similar to whitney, especially at the discount price. remember whitney was on the scrap heap when we got him. we will likely lose him as a ufa after the season he is having. if cullen gets over 3 million a year as a role player, whats whitney get as our top scorer? we cant pay whitney over 2.5 i would bet, if we even went that far.
