What's his cap hit.
I figure one of the lowest teams (Islanders, Atlanta) might take a stab at him

any of you cap guru's (seriously) know what his pro rated hit would be, and what we would have to waive or trade to fit him in?

This could be a perfect reclaim. I have a hard time believing 56 goals just happens on a lucky hot streak.

Would love to give him a shot next to Malkin and Staal but a 3 million cap hit just wont do it.

37, 23, 12 and 5 since then. Sens fans were dying to get rid of him.

Maybe two years ago, definite no right now.

Not a snowball's chance in hell we should take a flyer on him at that hit. From the other thread, my thoughts on Cheechoo:

Quote:
Starting to think Cheech has some off ice problems. That or he's a true one season wonder. He has just plummeted off the charts. It's one thing if you go from that 50G season to scoring 28G or whatever. You still have some value then but he just completely disappeared. Even when given a change of scenery and playing for two talented teams. When you go from that to scoring 5G in 61 games, something is seriously, seriously wrong.
Someone correctly added that it might have something to do with prior surgeries impacting his play but I'm not really familiar with what procedures he went through. Either way, bad idea.

Yeah, something's wrong with Cheech. Reclamation, my ass. There's something going on that we're just not aware of.

I agree. He was playing with Big Joe during his 56 goal rocket richard winning season. next season he kind of tailed off. before you know it Devin Setoguchi was the new kid in town. And of course the Heatley trade

Sharks fans would know more about this, but I heard he got an injury that really hampered his play. Even in the year before Thornton he got 28 goals. It really is amazing to think that he got 93 points one year, though.

Proof that linemates DO influence your point totals, and quite significantly sometimes!

No, no, no, a hundred times NO....

He was money for one or two seasons, but based upon his numbers the last couple years, I want no part of this guy on the Pens. There's going to be a few people that say the whole "On Sid's line, he would be awesome" bit.

Just no.

I think it's knees and groin. Do Ottawa buy him out in the summer if he goes unclaimed?

Can't believe that the Sens took this guy for Heatley.

Blah...

I might have to drop the Penguins as my favorite team if they claim Jonathan Cheechoo.

Fortunately, Shero isn't senile and won't pick him up.

Now now... No reason to get all worked up.

I've been saying it for weeks that Adams needs a legitimate bottom 6 winger and Cheech might fit the bill.

easy there big fella . If we get Kunitz to change his number, so Cheech could have his beloved 14 back, maybe he'll score 40?

If hockey teams had 5th lines, I still wouldn't pick up Cheechoo.

I thought it was pretty clear sarcastic exaggeration, but whatever.

Cheechoo is awful. At everything. He isn't an adequate NHL player anymore.

Agreed. He is done. If he had any inherent value another GM would have offered a 7th round pick for him. But he doesn't, especially since he is making 3mil.

Not even on re-entry waivers. This guy would in no way get us closer to a cup.

This years version of Cheechoo? We already had him on the Pen's back in '99-00, his name was Pat Falloon. (at least that is who he reminds me of, lol)
