In the article I read yesterday he said that he'd take Crosby money or less.

Well I guess he changed his mind as a couple of weeks ago he wasn't going to take a hometown discount

Malkin is already talking extension at or below Crosby's price. The last factor is what Fleury is going to want.
Crosby at nearly nine million. Then Malkin in or around $8.5 million.

Where does Hossa fit in there? Even if he did take a $6.5 million - which is ridiculous, the Penguins still can't afford to have three players making over $25 million.

If the Habs are not going to fish... we'll finish between 5 and 8 next season... and we're gonna lose in round 2 once again.

Sincerly, something is lacking in this team. We just can't wait next season and hope that nobody will get hurt and that Kovalev will have once again a career year...

There is some grit and some depth lacking to be a potential contender, and many of the UFAs would address our needs this year.

I am a fan of the idea of signing Naslund. He may very well be a steal considering the bucks he'll make.

Discuss.
Not a big fan of Nagy after his last 2 years, was a big fan of his in junior but he seems to have lost his mojo and no longer plays with an edge.

Vrbata I wouldn't mind as long as the price is right, but he is probably worth more to a team that can plug him on the 1st line, like Malone I think his price might be too high for BG to justify.
