True enough, but maybe somebody will give him a good deal which could be good for him. Avs must have something in mind if they released him.

If he wants 24 mil early on, his contract's cap hit will likely be in the 6mil range.
Agreed, it all depends if Kroenke is willing to open up his check book.

We would be relying on having Mueller healthy and playing with Duchene, very risky. Much rather sign Hudler or Parenteau who are reliable.

Hishon missed all of last year, not happening.

Sgarbossa needs some AHL time first.

Since there is nothing going on. Here is a list of all the trouble Balotelli has gotten into. Let's keep in mind that he is only 21 years of age:

>Survived a usually fatal disease at birth
>10,000 in parking fines
>Car impounded 27 times
>300,000 fine for throwing darts at the youth team
>Won 25,000 in a casino, gave 1,000 to a tramp outside
>Rescued a child from bullying
>Threw tomatoes at some Serie A manager
>Threw water balloons at Serie A meeting
>Started a fight with 4 bouncers, after breaking the no touching rule at a strip club
>Thinks milk with tea is strange
>Bibotelli saga
>Had a 120,000 Audi R8 imported and wrote it off within a week
>Had his friends approach girls in clubs and say "Balotelli will see you now."
>Sent to John Lewis by his mother to buy essentials for the house, like an ironing board
>Came back with a giant trampoline and a Vespa and Scalectrix
>Started fights with Kompany, Boateng and Tevez at training
>Was frequently seen at the AC Milan superstore while playing for inter
>Went on TV in an AC shirt with his name on while at inter
>U21s game for Italy, kicks a swedish player while he's down and proceeds to just sit on the pitch ignoring the opposition and the referee for about a minute.
>Is then offended when he gets sent off and protests about it
>He winked at Ferdinand at the semi final of the FA cup and celebrate in front of the Man U fans.
>After the FA cup final, on live TV, says "This season I have been s***. Can I say that?"
>Was stopped by police driving round Hulme (a real craphole) in his maserati with 25,000 cash on the passenger seat. When asked why he said "because I'm rich"
>Had to go off at half time in a game in Ukraine due to an allergy to the pitch
>Had to be physically hauled away by Zanetti for refusing to let Samuel Eto'o take a penalty that he had won
>Once broke up with a girlfriend via text while she was presenting a live television show
>Slept with a model while his girlfriend was asleep downstairs
>*** mental chicken hat
>When he won the European Golden Boy trophy, said he had never heard of Jack Wilshere
>Said he would find out who he was so he could remind Wilshere he came second
>Drove his car into a women's prison so he could have a look around
>Swore on live TV after the FA cup final
>Attempted a roulette back heel shot against LA Galaxy and missed
>Connections with the Naples Mafia, he even testified in court at a Mafia trial
>Brought iPad to bench during International friendly.
>Set house on fire using fireworks
>Said only Messi is "a little stronger" than him, and he is better than all other players
>"Why always me?" shirt, made for him by City kitman Chappy
>Drove around Manchester high fiving city fans from his car the day after 1-6
>Became the face of a firework safety campaign days after setting his house on fire
>Hands 20 notes out to strangers when in Manchester
>Chanted Rooney! Rooney! at the prostitute who claimed to have slept with Rooney

Sherman has been pretty frugal with all our players. I wonder if he can stomach overpaying a player as much as they are going to have to today.

An intimidating winger who says he'll be happy to give up his bonuses to take a cap hit of 6 meatballs a day instead.
Looks like he can, pretty cheap too.

Lol, love how NHL.com always tries to hype up the FA "frenzy" with the "plenty go around" and "deep FA pool" headlines this time of year.

When is the last time we actually had an exciting trade deadline or free agent period?

How is saying Sgarbossa wing Duchene & Hejduk negative? I think Sgarbossa would be outstanding.

I think he is yeeears off being ready. Hence the small price we paid for him.

Can we afford paying him that many meatballs? We used most of our meatballs paying Kevin Porter.
