All I want is 1C. The rest will take care of itself.

Despite all the controversies I think DP would like to retain him for right money.

The only reason he would stay would be his brother.

Why wouldn't he want to stay, especially if SK stays? Because he missed two playoff games due to his own actions, as a result of a suspension he acknowledged was appropriate?

So, I'm guessing this is why everyone wants to trade Radulov, as well...since his ego is now so bruised he "wants out" anyway?

I'm gonna throw one out of left field here. Im not advocating bringing him in or not, just throwing a name out there for discussion.

With Montreal hiring a new GM, rumor is Scott Gomez will be bought out. Is he worth bringing in for ~1 million? Lots of experience, used to be good before he started sucking, has a lot to prove. He also went a year without scoring....

Lots of pluses, lots of minuses.

Those 11 letters pretty much perfectly sum up my feelings toward him right now.

EDIT: He decided to talk. Said he wants to think about it for awhile. The above still stands.

That is a very very very lop sided trade in Boston's favour.

How about we quit counting on Euros and get some hard hitting NA boys who can put the puck in the net? Don't get me wrong, I love Erat and Josi but frankly I want some guys who are willing to play the body and can put the puck in the net.

Andrei Kostitsyn is usually pretty good at both of those things. What, you think the Kings are going to just up and trade Dustin Brown?

While I have your ear, Mr. Cherry, do you still have that wicked suit with the sailboat across the front of the jacket? I loved that one.

Barrett Jackman is also an UFA this summer...could be a great second pairing guy if Gill doesn't hang around.

I doubt that's the case. They're brothers, but they appear to be fairly independent of one another.

I see AK staying.

Rads on the other hand...that one is anyone's guess.

McGrattin will walk.

Gaustad didn't help as much as I thought he would, but I'd still like Poile to re-sign him.

I see a few of you want Tootoo out.
I really respect what he has done, where he has ocme form, and what he has gone through. I hope if he is not re-signed by the preds he finds a great new home.

I think it's just a matter of not having enough space on the wings to justify keeping Tootoo if he cannot be more consistent. We have cheaper options, and depending on who gets signed/re-signed the cheaper option may be the best.

Considering if Suter walks, we'll be pretty close to the cap floor. I don't think pinching pennies is the reasoning for cutting Tootoo.

I could go either way. I love his spirit, energy, and physicality, but he isn't very versatile in terms of special teams. I have a feeling it will come down to Yip and Tootoo, one will stay, one will go. I think there will be alot of demand for Toots which will result in him testing FA.
