Ryan Malone being shopped?

http://www.startribune.com/sports/wild/124167893.html

Thoughts? He'd be a very good replacement for Wolski if we trade him or buy him out. He's only slightly more expensive, so we could still add Richards even if we traded for him.

I'd be very interested in bringing him in.

I'm concerned about his durability, but he'd fit the mold of the team and be a solid PWF.

his contract is almost as bad as reddens...and if you trade for him that basically stamps richards' contract in tb as you just cleared up the cap space they need.

Would he fit with Gaby? He can play wing or center. Id take him but he would cost at least a first and a good prospect like del zotto.

We'd have more than enough cap space if we dumped Wolski to bring in Malone.

I don't know he's kinda like Callahan, it's better to have them in their younger years.

So buy out Wolski who is 25 and can grow and improve with the team to bring in this expensive veteran who's body never holds up for 82 games?

I don't see the upgrade so I say no.

Isn't he another RW'er.

While he would help this powerplay a lot, our real issue is the left side, especially if we let Wolski go, so I think we should be more focused on that side.

Understood. The point he was making is that if we take Malone off their hands, Tampa Bay would then have sufficient room (regardless of any internal cap) to meet or exceed any offer for Richards. So, ironically, in acquiring a winger for Richards, you're actually improving the odds that he signs elsewhere.

He can play any forward position.

We could probably afford to offer Richards up to 9M. If Tampa wants to go to 10, let them overspend and handcuff themselves.

having cap space doesn't make it a good deal. he has 4 more years left on his terrible contract and he has gotten worse and more injured each season since signing. i've always like malone and if it was 1 year left i'm all over it. but i don't touch that contract with another teams cap space. i'd rather keep wolski for the year and then go after a better player...

plus again if tb gets rid of malone they probably sign richards

Get Richards, then we could trade for him...he plays a great game screening goalies and has played LW most of his career. But his contract is messy...I would see it as a deal giving them cap relief, so I wouldnt send much of anything back. Also he's more of a 2-3 LW not a 1.

So, we'd have Malone locked in at $4.5MM through 2015 and Richards locked in at $9MM through 20-god-knows-when?

oog.

I can't see us going to even 8.5M for Richards, let alone 9. Actually I don't see us going a penny over 8...but time will tell.

Liked him as a free agent, but Tampa broke the bank a little too much for my liking. Plus, he's breaking down a lot faster than I thought he would. Love what he brings to the table on the ice, but not with that contract and the risk for injury.

not sure how we are giving him 9m unless drury retires. but tb doesn't have to outbid us. rumor is that richards wants to play in tb so all they have to do is be able to make a respectable/comparable offer. removing malone lets them comfortably offer him 6.5-7 mil which likely gets it done.

Between Wolski's buyout and Malone's cap hit, you are looking at a combined cap hit of ~5 mil for the next 2 years, and then Malone still has another 2 years left after that at 4.5 mil.

No thanks. Not giving up assets to get an injury-prone player just so tampa can clear cap space to sign Richards.

He was great for PIT. His contract is not terrible for a centre. Too expensive for just a role winger he became. We need no more Drury type, we have them.

Contract concerns like others have stated. The sensible thing would be to send Wolski the other way if it is centered around cap relief... after the Richards signing. Why should we buy out Wolski just to create space for Malone? Tampa saves on length and dollar, we should probably get more in return.

I think Malone is a great player to have on the team come playoff time and I think with him and Dubi on LW it gives great balance to the first couple of lines.

The problem is the length of the contract. Other than that, I'd take him.
