what about a 4th line of Eager Talbot and Carcillo
I'd also try to get Bradley, Leino
at D, I don't feel anything available would be good for us. Wiz / Erhoff would likely whine as the 3rd string.
I would like a Hannan, but I know he's not as mean as he used to be in his good old days, so no. I'd rather go with what we have right now and give a chance to Emelin and the other guys.

I got gomez on here cause that's the more likely scenario, but IMO if PG can get a trade partner for gomez, and he's not doing everything he can to get richards on july first, he's not doing his job. that is a massive, MASSIVE upgarde on gomez no matter what kind of year either of them have. Even if we have to give richards like six or seven years, there will always be a taker for a player of his caliber, if we ever ran in to cap problems and had to adjust, which i don't see happening since the cap is just going to keep going up. in five years time richard may be making 8 million and getting paid under what he's worth because if the drastic increases that will continue to come. i say we offer him 7.5, 6 years.
