PHX fans might sign a player with a career high 13 goals to a 2.6 mill longterm contract but I believe phoenix management has a little more brain cells than that.
First of all Carcillo was a ROOKIE, secondly he isnt a goal scorer but more of a energy line pest, and thirdly his 13 goals were not scored in 82 games but were in 57 games. Stoll's second highest career goal total is 14 which was scored last year.. and hes qualified for 2.5Mish this year by Lowe.
what does that say about edmonton management who have signed Pisani <career high 18G> , Moreau <20> and Stoll <over 14 once> to 2M+ contracts.
We can say Cogliano's upside is Parise but whats the upside of a player who was on pace to score 18-20 goals and rake in 400PIMs.
Carcillo and Dustin Brown on one team would be murderous. haha make it happen Lowe. 300 PIM's and 300 hits. slaughter-fest 3000. if Carcillo got some of his moronic penalties out of the way so he could see more ice time the dude would destroy Avery's face as the best "agitator" who can play.
I agree. If they can find a way to add Lidstrom, Pronger, Crosby and Ovechkin without losing any roster players, look out.
No, it's only the Oilers who try to add players to their team without giving up any roster players.
The Coyotes are building from within. And in case if hadn't realized it, you don't necessarily need Lidstrom, Pronger, Crosby and Ovechkin to win. All you need is a TEAM that plays hard for each other. Superstars does not guarantee winning.
Both Carolina and Tampa Bay won the Stanley Cup without a so called King Pin on their blueline. And Carolina definitely did not have anyone with the skill of Crosby or Ovechkin. Eric Staal is not even close!!!
Carcillo is a grade "a" pest. I remember at the beginning of last season he had got up in Roli's grill and tugged at his mask in the first 5 min. of the game (no penalty). In addition he made about 6 solid checks in the same amount of time.
If he can tone it down from a "10" to a "6" in the fighting department he could play 95% of the games in a season. The guy sprained his knee and Gretzky had to send him down because his first game he promptly racked up 25 min. in the box. The guy is a monster.
However, Carcillo isn't that big of a guy and his body will break down quickly if he doesn't turn the volume down - much like Avery and Tucker. Regardless, I would love to see a guy like that in Oiler silks with Buchy chirping in his ear. We could regain some of our long forgotten grit and open up some more ice for all our play makers.
