nope. dubi can atleast hang in a supporting offensive role though. we need a beyond legit top liner.

less guys that fade when the going gets tough and more guys that have skill and can put up with the grind in their face. gabby needs some help to get more space and less overwhelmed.

Based on what I am reading, for essentially almost the same 2011 money, we can either keep Wolski or buyout Wolski and have the savings pay for whatever Drury's buyout would cost, and then have a net cap savings of about $3.5 million.

This is wonderful! This is exactly the type of news I need to get me fired up for a good offseason.

Exact math:
Buyout Wolski
2011-12: $466,667
2012-13: $666,667
and
Buyout Drury
2011-12: $3,716,667
2012-13: $1,666,667

(Total 2011 cap hit of both players =$4,183,334)

or

Pay Wolski - $3,800,000.

I'm a fan of the idea of paying $4,183,334 instead of $10,850,000 in combined dollars for those 2 guys and having $6.67 Million open to do what we need with. Loving this.

A bit late to the discussion but I don't think signing Leino would be a good idea. I mean the guy obviously has a ton of skill but I just can't see him succeeding under Tortorella. Leino is a diva: he's only successful when he's allowed to play his own puck possession game and a certain level of freedom. He didn't do well in Detroit and he didn't do well in Philly first either. It was only in the playoffs when he was given a lot of playtime under spotlight and the freedom to be the guy on the rink that he started to succeed. All I can see is Tortorella trying to force him in to a mould and his NHL career crumbling under it.

And also, wtf with Leino. That would be an absolute waste considering we have a million guys who do what he can do.

And curiousity... Are there any veteran defenseman with an offensive punch out there this year?
Leino can skate, is talented and creative with the puck and is defensively responsible. We have no one who fits that description. I still wouldn't sign him because I think we have prospects who fit that description and we need Brad Richards. Hale
