since we probably won't be able to sign Sundin, as of right now in the FA market do we have an interest in Federov even tough he is 37 and past his prime ? I wouldn't sign him at more than 2-2,5 $ but the guy still has skills as he put up decent number with the Caps, 11 pts in 13 games and good playoff numbers.
Since I come from Qc City, seeing him at the World championship made me aware he is still a good skater and could mentor youngsters like Andrei and Sergei...
If not Federov then what center would you aim to get in a trade ?
Horcoff ? Arnott ?
Thanks and be kind with me it's my 1st thread started : )
As a 3rd line centre, i think Fedorov would be a great fit! Pay him between 2-3 million and you have a pretty reliable centre who is good on the faceoff and that can pot 40-50 points a year. A 3rd line of S. Kost Fedorov and Latendresse would be pretty damn good I find...
A. Kost Pleks Kovy
Tanguay Koivu Higgins
S. Kost Fedorov Latendresse
4th line is rotation of guys such as Lapierre, Chipchura, Begin, Kostopoulos and Greg Stewart
The 6m contract was given a long time ago. He's still good (56pts in 68 games), got a load of experience and should easily accept a one year deal. He can step up to line #2 in case of injury plus his defensive game was always so underrated.
Edit : Just looked at his face-off % in Washington : 55.58 %
