TSN talking about it as a good deal for FL, and that he'll be a first liner. $3.5MM/yr? First line? Really?

I'm guessing Howson needs the $$$ for another decent Dman/Hejda ...or GOOD backup goalie.

But....as I've said before, we may regret letting him go.

I wanted to see Scottie resigned, but quite frankly, he can be replaced. Get er done Howson!

Didn't think he'd be coming back. Good luck in taking your talents to South Beach, Scottie!

We may have, except he signed with Florida.

They also started their show with a warning to all GM's that hadn't made the playoffs in the last 3 or 4 years that doing ANYTHING today would just hurt their team...

I doubt it.

The perception has always been that Upshall produces in large amounts, which isn't the case. At the end of the day, we're talking about someone who was drafted shortly after Nash (2002) and has never hit 35 points in a season. It takes an awful lot of "intangibles" and other factors to make up for that.
