For the right price and length of deal, I would bring in Cammaleri. He's already 31, so nothing dumb.

If so that could be huge for a variety of lines especially anyone that schenn centers.

Actually his contract is not that bad. A 28 year old with five years left on a deal with a cap hit of $5M per. Coburn will be getting more than that when he re-ups in two years. If Edler's back can be treated and he can get healthy, I'd be for swapping him for Coburn. I can't see Coburn ever being more than he is now and that is a guy who doesn't get big in games that count.

Couts top end speed isn't slow. It's his acceleration that is. He builds to his top speed like a garbage truck going up a 60 degree angle.

How about Heatley, fellas? Would anyone take him and for what price? I can't make up my mind. I'm sure he'll take a pay cut, but I don't know how significant it'll be. I'm also unsure of how much he has left, but I'm kind of hoping he just needs to go somewhere he'll fit in nicely and revive his career a bit. Still, from what I've seen this year, he might not have much left in the tank.

I've read San Jose fans hating on him pretty bad. He might be damaged goods.

He may be small but he's still a good player despite it & is very clutch. He would also likely come cheaper than Vanek.
I vaguely remember that. But I believe it was just Carchidi being an idiot and throwing names around that the Flyers might consider.

Was thinking this today...Heatley with a change of scenery on a 1 year $2-4m "prove me" deal. Could be a home run. Could be a disaster.

Exactly. I've been thinking about this since the season started, and I just couldn't reach a conclusion. Glad I'm not the only one with such crazy thoughts

edit: Keep Vinny, put Heatley on his wing? I'd like to see what comes out of that.

How many changes of scenery does Heatley need. He's a lazy player and would infuriate us.

I'd vote to go after Vanek. Let Kimmo retire, use that money on Vanek.

I agree. A top end left wing would really help Giroux. Maybe go after a guy like Niskanen to fill the offensive void left by Timonen?

Niskanen and Vanek will cost WAYYYY too much for this team and fix very little.


This is really an offseason of patch ups.


Also --- Again --- Still....I'm pretty sure Vanek is a lock to go to Minnesota

Heatley isn't playing on a team that really allows him to flaunt his strengths. Minnesota has never been an offensive team. I'd be intrigued of what could come of him on Giroux's LW

Heatley makes Couturier look like Apolo Ohno.

I think I would max out at $2 million. Hasn't he been a healthy scratch the last couple games in the playoffs after a terrible season last year? I'm usually the guy saying players have a shot to bounce back, and I would be interested in Heatley on a very low deal, but more than $2 million is out of the question IMO. I'd be more comfortable at around $1 million and $2 million is a stretch. But if he is willing to go for that, I would be very interested. But I think he is pretty unlikely to get anywhere near even 40 goals. On a $1 million deal, I'd be psyched with 20 goals.

Wouldn't want Heatley unless it's one year and league minimum.

Also, I don't like edler.
New Jersey pumped out their first whilst hosting a draft, cant see Holmgren retaining his 1st to select a crap shoot.

What dont you like about Edler? Holmgren was rumoured to be going after him at the trade deadline
