The Coyotes have put him on Waivers, would you take a flyer on him and then trade for a Rucinsky or Young and plop them on Weight's line and then have money left over to deal for another D-man or a goalie like Manny Fernandez.
He makes 3.2 Million/yr. I wonder how many years are left on that. Because at this point in the season that would mostly be paid. And savage always plays good against us.
There are 2 years and 7 million left on his contract. That might be enough to make Pleau pass. I honestly don't know if he'd be effective here. He is incredibly streaky and while a move might kick him into a frenzy it might kill his recent offensive surge.
Barring any late deals yet to be reported (and I'm not talking about Varlamov going elsewhere), Pleau did zip. This team is screwed.
Should I refresh the first Weinrich thread? I think I shall. I'm feeling a bit loud and obnoxious right now; so, I'll go find it. No need for anyone to thank me.
Pleau did not address our porous blueline issues any further than Weinrich; hell even those that wanted a scoring winger must be disappointed in Savage being the only guy we added. The Blues are one of the big losers today.
