It depends for how much?

over 4 million not worth of it.

Something like 2-3 million would be good signing

Good pickup, I think Val Bure is quite underrated. He's not going to bring anything but offense, but he's not needed to. Good insurance for LA in case Frolov isn't back.

Link isn't working.

If its true then I am not happy. Its an excuse for not signing a better player. I like Val, he is a nice guy, but "nice guy" is not a profession. He is not going to succeed here, just like everywhere else he played.

He should get no more than Stillman or Whitney signed for, $1.5 mil or so.

agreed. I was actually suprised stillman only got 1.5 after his 80 point season. However if Val goes for more its a mistake. If 1.5, it leaves the Kings room for another addition

Depends on how you define success. I personally think he had a pretty successful '03-'04 season. Nice signing. Now for Frolov...

Ray Whitney would have been much better if Bure is going to make $1.5.

I know you guys in Colorado are a bit spoiled, but there's this new thing called the CBA which was specfically written so that 20 goal scorers could NOT get $4m per season!
My bet is on $1.5M or a little less...

I fear this pretty much confirms that Frolov will not be coming back. I don't see why Taylor would make the signing otherwise. The only positive of this is that hopefully the new rules help out a guy like Bure.

I could see him on a line with Roenick and Robitaille, not a bad 2nd line.

I can define failure. Val played 22 playoff games and haven't registered a goal. Ever.

Then again, why would we need playoff performers? We aren't likely to make them.

Bure last played most of the 03-04 season with Florida, but was traded to Dallas near the trade deadline where he would finish the season with 22 goals and 52 points in 68 games.


Good pickup.

Not exactly, this was posted on a different rumor board before Ecklund posted it.
