He does not have the wheels to skate with Andy McDonald.

They could try him with Penner and Getzlaf and see how that goes...he really needs a season in Portland though.

That's why I think he could play center. He's kind of a puck possession player, if you have that playmaking brain you can be a fantastic center and not be that fast (see guys like Thornton, Jason Allison in his prime). I am just glad he will get a full year against men next season.

Parros got re-signed too? Good for him. He has the capability to establish himself as a better player rather than simply an enforcer much like Todd Fedoruk. He was doing that for the Kings last year and I was upset when the Kings lost him, let alone put him on waivers (and then even more when he was had for a 2nd round pick). I hope you guys can get his name on the Cup

This reminds me of the "Getzlaf should play wing because he isn't great on draws" BS we heard last year.

You know I will gladly eat that crow right now. Getzy made HUGE strides in the face-offs circle this year and I feel stupid ever suggesting such a thing. But he did suck at them last season and I thought that's what Burke was doing getting another center. Oh well.

There's more to playing center than taking faceoffs. Any of the three forwards can take the faceoff.

Selanne was surprisngly good in face-offs considering he has never played center.

Just me, or did it seem like The Ducks, specifically Andy Mac, were constantly getting thrown from the face off circle?

Not just you. I noticed it all year. Maybe he was cheating more because he knew Teemu could handle his own if he got kicked.

Well I think he was like at 55% or something ridiculous for the year, he should teach everyone to cheat like he's been doing. Getzlaf especially, he could use some work.

LOL, I just noticed that Ryan Carter makes more than Ryan Getzlaf. Carter was undrafted while Getz was the #19 pick. Carter must have a better agent...but Getzlaf will fly by him quickly.

BTW, what's the buzz on Carter? I really know nothing about him.

That's because he was signed post-lockout and Getzy's includes the rolled back amount. But, since Carter spent all year in Portland he only made like 40k whereas Getzy made all of his 700+k.

Having seen Carter play but a handful of minutes in the playoffs, he's alright. Better than Shannon and Brent at least.

The figure listed is the cap hit, not base salary. One would assume they had to give Carter some bonuses to entice him into signing.

Carter (as well as most of our college UFAs) get the rookie max, 850,000. This is how you sign UFAs, you pay more than the other guy. That's the downside of not drafting them ahead of time. I think McKee and the likes are at that level too.

Agree and judging by his progress the last two years there's no reason to think he won't be even better next season.

And of related note, Mikael Holmqvist was not invited back to Chicago. I forgot where I read this little tidbit.

Well, Penners contract looks like a steal with Philly signing Hartnell for 4.2M$ for each of the next 6 years...
