Take that 3.5 or so that Ville wants and float it towards Jagr tomorrow. Verbal deal with the Pens for 2 million, but Jagr doesn't seem the type to refuse near double. We'd have an interesting weapon and we'd just give the Pens a huge **** you.
I heard the rumor about us going hard after a RFA and my belief is it is Yandle, Doughty, or Bogosian. That being said, this is a great deal for both teams. Phoenix needs a new goalie. We need a young, top defenseman. Win-win situation
By the way, I think you are a $1,000,000 short on Yandle and that Simmons will be $2 mm for next year given what others are getting. But I'd try to find a cheaper goalie than Emery (Harding) so this would all squeeze in, I think.
That team would be very good, but pray for no injuries.
