hal gill at 2,some millions seems pretty bad. kubina at 5 a year seems a little over the top; not a bad player but 20 for 4 is ridiculours money! We don't have lo listen to bulis trying to convince us that he belongs on the pp anymore, and that's good.
I'm sad that we missed out on Shanny and had to settle on Samsonov though
Happy we didn't sign Poti, Perreault, Dazé, Rucchin, Anson Carter, Sykora (even though he's doing good so far....), Parrish, Witt, Nolan, Roenick, Rucinsky, Guerin, Weight, Gill, Kubina......
To say the least, the best moves are usually the ones you don't make.....
He did well at the end of last season, and I thought he could've done some good here. He's a better playmaker and finisher than Sammy...not quite as speedy though. Personally I would've liked him, even if he didn't continue doing this well I'd have projected him around 60-65 pts. The oils are one of my fave teams though so, I'm glad they got him... with Hemsky he should keep this pace up.
Oh and the 1 Trade rumor I wish would've came true : Ryder for Bertuzzi. Though Ryder is doing well, Bertuzzi is undeniably one of the greatest PF in the game, and he's bouncing back as I thought he would. Say with Bertz we'd have;
Higgins - Koivu - Bertuzzi
Perez - Plekanec - Kovalev (seemingly good chemistry between Perez and Pleks)
Kost - Bonk - Johnson
Lats - Begin - Murray
Can't complain about Ryder though, he's doing great so far.
