Yeah, but at least I got some assets back for Spezza while I still could.
Keep Spezza,Lose Savard- I lose all of the prospects I just traded
Keep Spezza-Keep Savard- No cap Space
Lose Spezza-Keep Savard- break about even , depth wise with what I gave for savard.
Lose Both- Screwed
I just wouldn't have traded for Savard in your situation, but everybody runs their team differently. Heck, I know I've made mistakes in some of these games too so it all fallson how you want to build your team.
Does anyone want to volunteer to handle European players?
Could someone handle college players too?

Toronto Lands a Centre
No, not Savard...we have our future #1 in Kadri. Until then however, we feel we have a solid veteran option in signing Robert Lang to a 1yr $2M deal, or the price Marc Savard will get for about 15 games.
"Lang is a Quality Centre that our kids (Kadri, Bozak) can learn from, and having his presence on the ice will give them time to grow and flourish. We welcome Robert in the organization"
Toronto still has about $10-12M in cap space left, so any team looking to deal a legit Top-6 forward for cheap to save cap space can give us a call. It was tough not to give the fans a shot at the Cup with a wild spending spree, but with the prices of Frolov and Savard we felt it was best to not screw ourselves in the future.
Flames sign C Rob Neidermayer to a 1 year contract. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
"We're pleased to land Rob as we feel he brings a great veteran presence to a team vying for the Stanley Cup, and he breathed some new life into his career last season in New Jersey. Welcome to the team Rob"
After this move we now have placed
Sjostrom, Nigel Dawes, Brendan Prust, Lori Korpikoski and Curtis Glencross on the trading block. PM if interested.
Are you talking aout Paul Ranger? I never said he was UFA. TB signed all of their RFA's, I just deleted the PM by accident before I updated the post. The only teams that have unsigned significant RFA's are Buffalo, Minny, and NYR and they have extra time because their GM's were replaced.
