Looks like the Flames may be interested in bringing him back (the asking price is a mid-round draft pick and/or 2nd tier minor league prospect.) What are your thoughts on The Eliminator? Should we bring him back? Or should Sutter focus his attention on a second line RW instead (a la Billy Guerin/Anson Carter.)
As it stands right now our lines look as follows (when healthy):
I think if the price is right we should definitely bring him back (he would be a great addition to our 3rd/4th line.) More depth on defence may also not be a bad idea. Either way I don't think Sutter's done tinkering just yet.

You should be able to get him for a 4th/5th. He's an aging UFA veteran and the only way I can see his price going up that high is if there's a huge bidding war. He's not worth too much more than a 4th/5th at this point.
Martin Gelinas: Again, there's no shortage of suitors for a gritty veteran who has delivered time and again in the playoffs. Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton are all rumored to be in the mix. Any bidding war would only help the Panthers in terms of what they can get in return.
Why Edmonton would be making inquiries, no one knows.
