If I had to put money down on anything on UFA day, it wouldn't be on someone getting less money.

Gomez turned out to be a major dud... wasn't a "fatal" error either... says a lot when avoiding the "fatal error" is the way were talking about our major offseason move, doesn't it?

It's not even clear that Briere will be an upgrade over doing nothing.

the guy hasnt played a single guy or been to an official practice yet so ill cut him some slack. He's proven that he`s clutch when it matters. Also, he wanted to come here which most quebecois are not willing to do..so he got my respect for that. Last time around, Im sure his ex wife had alot to do with his decision to go to Philly.

IF this doest pan out, he's out of the books after next season and his price is not that high as im sure he could have easily fetched Clarkson money on July 5th.
