I didn't say free agent, either. We have some trade chips (B. Schenn). And yes, I know what you're going to say. That would leave a center spot available for Vinny, which I don't agree with. I think the longer you hold onto that contract, the more difficult it will be to get rid of it. Also, I don't think Vinny is good enough defensively to play any real minutes at center. Scott Laughton or Raffl are way better defensively.

These 1-way guys who don't play defense and also don't score enough to justify having to shelter them constantly aren't worth the headache or cap hit imo (ie Vinny, Briere). I just don't see winning teams built with guys like that these days.
