Why not take a chance now? We have more than enough depth to make this kind of a gamble. This could well turn out to be a steal.
Marcel Hossa's future involves the ECHL, and then the Czech Extraliga. Think Jason Bonsignore, but not as talented.

Sigh, mentioning Bonsignore always makes me a lil sad. All the talent in the world but the attitude of a pregnant donkey. He was on pace to score 82 goals back in 1994 too..

That said, I could see Rita going for a prospect or a pick. Perhaps Rita for a 3rd round pick, CREW?
works for me,but everything I've read is that this is a weak draft.

I'd think a nice prospect would have more value then a 3rd.

I also believe that Rita is worth more than a middle 3rd rounder in a weak draft. His stock has definitely fallen but it hasn't dropped that far in my mind..

I'll have to agree with Cerebral. And, I also think Rita's market value is higher than Mapletofts at this point.
