If the team is set on buying, I'm on the Marcel Goc bandwagon. Cheap in both salary and likely assets to acquire him, allows you to either move MP in a trade, or move him to the wing if Chimera's traded, and is decent in the faceoff dot.
I was thinking a 3rd, maybe a 2nd....certainly not a the 1st. I'd throw in a middling prospect too if needed.
Somewhat comparable players in Clowe and Morrow each returned a 2nd + (the + for each was significant), and they're pending UFAs. I'd think the extra term on Ott's deal would push his price to a 1st+. No way I'd pay that for him.
more likely the times wants him to stick to what he can prove. remember, he has bosses and does what they tell him he can do.
Yeah, that's true. It just seems like rumors would get more attention and therefore more pageviews if he could turn it into a post. Then again, maybe he didn't have enough for anything more than a tweet.
