"There's still talk about Cody Franson but apparently the guy the Senators really like is Dan Hamhuis. Hamhuis is in the final year of his deal paying him $2 million a season. He is set to be a UFA at season's end and is not expected to return to Nashville."
"Another name that has come up is that of Andrew Brunette in Minnesota. Brunette would provide a veteran presence up front and could definitely help an ailing power play. Brunette has another year on a contract that pays him $2.3 mil a season."
Thoughts ? The Preds would like a forward & defenceman according to senschirp.
I think that too, but I see what some Sens fans are asking for Volchenkov on the trade boards.
Just trying to show the value from the other perspective... us being the buyers.
I view Hamhuis and Volchenkov as the same value.
While I do beleive that Volchenkov's value especially at playoff time is more valuable then Hamhuis, I do agree with you on your assessment that Hamhuis would likely garner a similar package as to what Volchie would get us. At least in the eyes of each teams respective fans....
