Making a phone call costs $0.10 and then you can say you tried, even though you never were really "in it". It costs nothing and gives your fanbase the impression that you aren't just setting your sights on other team's 4th line roleplayers looking to polish a turd into a top 6 talent.
I'm all for becoming tougher to play against, but we also have a severe lack of skill up front. Given that there's a lack of players in free agency that bring both, if we don't re-sign Wellwood then let's get Huselius at a huge bargain. He could slot in as the 2nd line RW.
