Free Agent Frenzy

Hey guys this sort of thread worked out great for us during the draft and mods permitting I thought it would be nice for tomorrow as well.

The frenzy has already begun!

Ballard to Minnesota
Briere to Montreal

Or is this supposed to be pyrocentric, like the draft thread?

Give me one of:

Grabovski, Raymond, or Russell and I'll be happy.

Ference or Hainsey are my preferences.

Really hoping we can get Grabovski.. I read the other day we're going for a center man and a dman, hopefully it's an interesting day

What on earth could have compelled Nill to take on Horcoff's contract.

As for the Flames, I really, really, really, hope they stay away from Bozak, Raymond, and Clarkson.

Ha! Those would be my top choices too. Both would be even better, I'd love to dump butler out of the top 6.

I'd be somewhat surprised if the Flames signed Hainsey. Recall from the lockout, Hainsey was big on the PA side of things, while Edwards was one of the few owners always present with Bettman and Daly. There were suggestions that negotiations often got, intense, on occasions when the players and owners were there. Could still be some bad blood, if there ever was.

Looking at what Dallas gave up we would have to give up Glencross + Wotherspoon + JG + Ferland

It was a fairly step price.

Grabo at < 4M 4years or less would be interesting
Raymond I like if we can get him for 9M or less total cost

Grabo would be a nice pickup by the Flames. Was hoping Ballard would sign here cheap but he went home instead.

I would have tried to swap out glenner but would easily have given the rest for a guy like seguin. Maybe that was just it, flames were not willing to part with glencross, or he wouldn't wave. Can't say that I would blame him, he clearly took a discount to stay here.

I think it would be he wouldn't waive. I would give the other 3 as well but giving up JG and Wotherspoon would hurt our porpsect depth.

Props for McTavish for getting Larsen for Horcoff.

As for Hainsey, I'll be surprised if many owners take him. He pissed a lot of owners off.

MacTavish just took advantage of the Stars like they were a drunk 17 year old at a college party.
