I think so too. There's a lot to like about Pominville, but he's 30 and has played with Vanek for most of his best years, no? He's known for his defense but he's barely a positive possession guy playing mostly average minutes. I'd love him on this team, but I don't wanna get caught in the bidding war and overpay for someone who's more of a complementary piece.
The way this team is playing, we're not on the cusp of anything great except a great big nosedive out of a playoff spot. Don't sell the farm. It's a sellers market and if you can get something decent for Clarkson and any of our D except Greene and Larsson, they you seriously look at it. Clarkson is not going to be the catalyst to us making the playoffs of winning a round and he's npt going to be worth what he gets paid as an UFA. Save the money and resign Elias, Zubrus, Henrique, and maybe Zidlicky.
Clarkson and our 2014 3rd (conditional) to Columbus for the NYR 1st rounder. (We get it back if he resigns in CLB).
Tallinder, A Train, Harold, Poni, Kostopolus - take you pick for a 4th rounder.
not bringing back sykkie was def a bonehead move. could have always waived him. whatever tho.
Agreed my Finnish friend. It was stupid, and then top off the fact Lou invited WASHED UP Mathieu Darche to training camp and personally called him himself. Before someone says ''Different roles'' yeah we really needed another PK guy/3rd/4th liner more than a goal scorer. We needed him as much as we need all these defensemen. Of course Darche retires a few weeks later too.
