No, no, no. I am not interested in anyone who is not part of the solution next year. In fact, I'd prefer that we look to get maximum value out of the guys we already have who will be leaving this summer (Prospal, Higgins, potentially Girardi).
that being said, really suprised the guy had as much trouble as he did sticking with a team after the devils. he played great for us in 05-06 and has all the skill in the world, just one of those things i guess.
$688,000+ for a forward that's scored 20+ for 10 consecutive years and has won two Stanley Cups?. Hell, yes. I really doubt he lasts until it's the Rangers turn. No brainer for me for a team that can't score.
Christensen was pretty brutal in Anaheim and he's been pretty good here. Sykora's always had a pretty good attitude about things, he COULD turn it around.
I'm not really onboard with the move, but I wouldn't mind it. If anything it would put some pressure on guys like Lisin and Kotalik to get their act together. We can always waive Christensen and/or Sykora and send them to Hartford and it wouldn't be a big deal.
