I'm pretty sure he wants a two year contract around $2 million a season. Not worth it IMO, even though he a had a good season last year. A two year contract, as ridiculous as it may sound, is too risky for a 36 year old.
Last I heard he wanted a deal similiar to the Tucker deal. So about 2 years for a little over 2 million a year. Sutter only wants to give him one year. Is he worth it? I would say for one year definetly. More than that though and I wouldn't do it.
So he signs with the Wild for 2 years at 5.5 million. Would have loved to have him back, but not for that long and that much money a year. The Wild definetly overpaid for him.
Agreed. I wouldn't have had a huge problem bringing him back for 2 years, but the money is a little much. But the Flames really need to find a second line winger, be it a LW or RW. Gotta get someone for Lombardi to play with.
