How would Shanahan be the perfect wingman for Carter and Umberger? He is a player who gets open on his wing and waits for a pass and unleashes that big one timer of his. While I would welcome that on the power play and on another line, Carter and Umberger need a playmaker, someone like Samsonov.

I would even take Recchi for one more year if there is nothing else left to sign.

I absolutely positively do not want A Carter. PLEASE NO!!!!!!

well if the rumors are true forget about Shanahan. he is asking for 5.5 per.
Samsonov would be perfect for Carter or Umberger.

i think Rex would be nice on the wing with Carter and Umberger... only problem is that it would be a tremendously unreliable line defensively.

Well, Umberger is not that bad defensively at all and maybe Carter will be a little better in that area. He was known to be good defensively in juniors, in the pros it is all hustle. Plus, Rex was not horrible when he was here. I think Pitts made him look really bad last year.

I like Rex as a short term fix but much rather sign someone younger (except A Carter). Hell, I rather have Dvorak then Carter.

one-year deal for Rex... that's all.

Carter is actually not bad defensively. He played the PK for Team Canada at the Worlds and looked great, I think he scored a shorty too. He just needs time to get the system down - he's not a natural defender like Richards.

he was lazy at times last year coming back... will need to show more determination without the puck. however, yes, there is certainly the "learning curve" aspect of playing in the NHL and he will be a better two-way player... i do think that line would be a liability defensively.
