The rumored deal dagoon mentioned is much more reasonable depending on what pick we would get and if it was redden instead of rosie because there is absolutely no reason we should be acquiring penner and his salary
Tomas Kaberle is willing to waive his NTC to come to the Rangers. The Leafs are reportedly interested in Callahan. Would you be willing to deal Cally for a year and a half of Kaberle, who would be our best d-man at a reasonable $4.25 million for Callahan?
No, I want no part of Karberle. We aren't going to be good enough in the next year that having him at 4.25 mil cap hit is going to put us over the top (especially considering all our other big contracts), and then he'll be UFA. He'll be even more on the downside of his career and he'll want even more money. We may be a little better in the short term (though we'd definitely miss Cally and what he brings), but in the long term we'd be worse.
