well he turned it down because it was 1 year and hes probably seeking 3-5 year deal

Bah, Laperriere signed with Philly. Son of a baby.

$1.17M per, I'd gladly have paid it.

Murray thought the Niedermayer negotiations were tiring so he decided to take a little afternoon nap.

The problem is that without Pronger, and possibly Beauchemin, the last pairing defensemen have to play significantly more than 8-10 minutes. Think more like 15.

He is a guy I had always targeted for this team for a long time. He's like the good version of role players the Ducks always target.

That depends on who is signed for the 3 slot and who factors into the 5 slot. There are still a lot of questions to be answered.

I'm pretty confident the Ducks will sign Beauchemin.

I hope not, if he doesn't want to be here then he shouldn't be here. anything above 3 million for beauchemin is an overpayment.

I think considering Komisarek only got 4.5 million, that drove Beach's value back down. My guess is he won't get the 4 million, and settles for 3.5.

I could live with that, but I'd rather spend the money on a more affordable short term UFA dman and get a better top 6 forward.

I'd offer Frankie 3. Maybe 3.2. We really can't afford to go more. I'm suspicious that he'd be actually worth more.

I'd rather use those money for a second line center than to sign Beauch. I like him, but no way he's worth that much.

Yeah, probably for this reason, still we can't afford him.

I wonder if Murray was at all interested in Zanon. 1.66 for 3 years seems like a great deal and he would have really helped solidify our defense for the next few years. I don't think he's all that worse than Beauch.

Seems like he is looking around to see if anyone will give him 4 million or more..if not hopefully he will stay in anaheim for 3 to 3.5.

It seems to me that he doesn't want to come back here.

I know it will not happen but I would try to get Cam Barker. Chicago will face huge cap-problems next season and they have to do something right now. Maybe it can be done something like

Mikkelsson + Carter + 2nd 2010 for Barker

I mean, Mikkelsson will be #7 defensman here and I think Mitera is the one to take this spot. Further more Carter looks like he will never get a chance under Carlyle. Barker, sure has some downsides, but he is strong on the powerplay, something we need. And he also has some physical tools.

Trading for Barker doesn't due us a ton of good if he is asking for a lot of money as an RFA. It still leaves us with the issues we already have.

Also You would probably see Chicago not want to take on anyone with a 1 way deal(Carter). But something else to ponder is if one of our two first round picks are in play?

I read somewhere that he is expecting to get somewhere between 4-5 million. Now I don't know if him not signing yesterday means he wasn't getting offers he likes or he is deciding who he wants to sign with.

But I think it is safe to say if those numbers are correct he won't be coming back to Anaheim.(Fingers crossed)

Mitera as the 7th defenseman is a waste on many different levels. It's a waste of one of his ELC years, a waste of cap space and a waste of a year of development.

Meh, I'm quite happy with the team as it is. I've accepted the fact that we're not contenders this season and Scotty will probably get traded to a conteder come trade deadline.

Also Giguere will not finish the season as a Ducks player, he could get traded even before the season starts. And that's just fine. Because even though Giggy is a top goalie, it just doesn't make sense to keep his 6M salary around if we're not contending.

I wouldn't say we're not contenders just yet, the trading and signings aren't finished yet.

Either way, if Scott thought we weren't contenders, he wouldn't have resigned (He could have went to any number of teams for more money)

If Murray thought that, I don't think he would be trying to make us better, same goes for Teemu, he wouldn't have came back if he didn't think he could win with this team.

Maybe he decided to sign because he was given a 6 million dollar contract and he did not have to relocate his family.

As for Teemu he did it purely for the love of the game and his commitment to the team and the fans. He is truly a unique person. He is one in a million.

I hear all this talk of dealing Giguere...what team is going to take a 6m goalie who had a down year last year? And which of those zero teams is Giggy going to waive his no trade for?
