What contract? The guy averages 20+ minutes a night and is pretty reliable. I don't see a little under 3 million as unreasonable, especially considering Rozsival's entry to UFA-dom might make him a 6 million guy.
and how many years are left on the 3 million dollar deal, and how old is he now? exactly like 5 years left and he is 35 already, no freakin way..
I am asking: what could we get from Edm for likes of Struds, Malik or Mara who most of us here's consensus are expandable?
If all we get for Struds are a bag of pucks and a clipboard than it is a trade I wouldn't do. if we can get a draft pick (albeit low one) that may be a different story.
I didnt' think Edm was a club blessed with abundant D talent. Now they are up the creek. Perfect team to negotiate with a favourable deal.
If the clipboard were upgraded to a trapper keeper, I say we take the deal and run... As far as D talent goes, Strudwick isn't addressing any needs there. If they were interested in Malik, we could talk. Maybe even Mara, but I feel Mara is misused here and could do great in a place where they let him use his talents. (Powerplay) It doesn't appear as though that's going to happen here.
As a counter offer, how have Hossa and Prucha played this year?
Would there be any interest in a package of Stoll and Pisani for those two?
Oh HELL yes. Hossa, Prucha Byers 2nd for Torres, Pisani and Stoll??
If the Rangers could some how get all three of those players I'd be in my freakin' glory. Always been a huge Pisani and Torres fan. Hossa just is not used right. Prucha needs a change of scenery and im sure him and hemsky would do well together.
