Nolan/Orszagh

I think it's pretty safe to say that teams will inquire about both guys once they're healthy, as both have aspects of their game that teams always look for

Question is- where do you see them signing?

My predictions

Nolan
-Chicago (if Daze or any other forward gets hurt, they'll need offence. I'm sure he could be had for cheap as well, at least, much cheaper than what he was set to make this year. Even if Tallon says the Hawks are done, that doesn't apply to January)
-New York Rangers (because y'know. )

Orszagh
-Pittsburgh (Could stabilize the third line if they aren't shutting down well enough)
-Minnesota (seems like he would fit in well here)

What do you guys think?

I think that if Orsagh is cleared to play he will stay in Nashville. They tried to find a way to sign him. If he isn't cleared I don't see anyone getting him (cap is problem). Probably he will sign in Europe then.

Orszagh was a good player for Nashville, not sure why they wouldn't want him back...

Oh I know they'd want him back, absolutely. I'm just not sure if they'd have the room to give him the icetime he deserves when he's on his game. Nashville, to their credit, have a ton of gifted forwards at camp, and if they earn their stripes, Orszagh may not be able to fit back in. Just a thought.

Just a note...Martin Erat said in the paper yesterday that Orszagh is starting to skate again...

there are some real questions about how that knee was reconstructed [the type of surgery done] in Slovakia as to its stability...

Orszagh will likely stay in Nashville IMO. But I think there are many teams that would be interested in him for the right price. I think he would be a good fit in Columbus

Nolan, I'm not too sure about, I think maybe Pittsburgh to help fill out the 2nd line (Recchi Crosby Leclair, Nolan Lemeiux Palffy) or even Florida (they already have 2 x-leafs)

we'd love to have vladdy back in nashville, but to be honest, there's really not a spot for him anymore. if the timing is right(someone goes down just as he gets healthy) i could see it happening, but otherwise, the roster looks to be pretty full.

Well since Nolan is a Belfast boy, well at least for the first few years of his life, maybe he'll return to his routes and play for us. I wish!! Na he'll wind up somewhere in the NHL with someone. Maybe New York?

Except with players that actually care about winning.

No but really, I could see Nolan wanting to go back to San Jose.

What kind of salary do you think he could command for the remainder of the season (when he eventually does come back)? I would see him signing for the minimum, prorated over the remainder of the season (ie - $225,000 cap hit if he misses half the year). I can't see how he could possibly command more than a million. Philly could definitely fit that in. Of course, you also have to look at the player's motivation. Would he want to join a top contender for the remainder of the year and try to win a Cup, since he doesn't have one yet? Would he want to join a struggling team and help them turn it around, thus improving his stock for next year's UFA period? Would he even care about the money since he has probably already made in excess of $50 million in his career? Particularly if he gets the $11 million golden parachute from the Leafs? Would he be motivated to join one of the Leafs' rivals (Ottawa, Philly or even Montreal) if he feels he's been screwed over by them through this buyout/no buyout process? I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Also, I asked this on the Nolan thread in the business section - does anyone have any speculation on how the Leafs "believe" Nolan was re-injured? I know they feel it was non-hockey related, but obviously that in itself wouldn't necessarily relieve them of their obligation to pay him. What exactly do they think he was doing? Bull fighting? Bungee jumping? Hot oil wrestling?
