You don't think that once in a blue moon, a player comes along who has things he cares about more than money?
You clearly have not paid any attention to what has been going on with Paul Ranger in the last few years if you think he is willing to play anywhere. Go do some reading up on his situation and come back and tell me he'd sign here.
Yep, exactly right. I remember reading somewhere when he eventually came back, he specifically said he didn't want to play anyplace but Toronto and be near family and friends.
The first one still gives me the free willies. Haven't seen the second one.
I searched for the 2nd one. I couldn't find it again. It made the rounds years ago when it happened. I think it was one of those "spotlight" downtown nightlife photographers, and he was taking pics of Commodore's birthday at a Glenwood South nightclub. Somewhere, he posted a link to his photos, and the one with the "oopsy, she ain't wearing no panties" shot gained in popularity!
I could see us going for one of those "change-of-scenery" deals that have worked for us in the past. Perhaps an expiring contract like Ryan Whitney from the Oilers? Apparently, he's been terrible this season, enough to get him benched, but he has an otherwise good reputation as a decently-responsible, top-4 worthy PMD, and has time to turn it around. Perhaps a straight Corvo-for-Whitney swap at the number 7 D-spot would be a decent gamble?
