St. Louis?

With Tampa not looking to be able to sign him. Would you want to take a shot at him. He's been a free agent since tampa won the cup.

God, yes! That would remove my only reason for rooting for Tampa at any point (and mind you, it was only in the playoffs last season when FLA was already golfing).

Marty St. Louis is as hard playing a guy as you can get, supremely talented...no question he'd be a great signing.

The issue is cap space... Do you guys have the headroom to match an offer? Overpaying Lecavalier's going to hurt in the long run.

Aren't the picks dependent upon the contract amount?

Anyway, they won't get compensatory picks if they're forced to trade his rights for picks or role players because they can't afford to accept much salary...which is the only reason they wouldn't sign him.

Wouldn't it just be typical of this offseason if Pittsburgh somehow pulls a trade for this guy?

Doubtful, of course, but anything goes this year.

As it stands now. Tampa can't afford more then 5M to sign him. Is he worth more then 5M a year?

Well...erm...hm. Maybe. I'd be thinking more $4.5M and we'll promise to sign Perrin for $500k

If we got St. Louis we would have quite the fast team wouldn't we?
