Ok, so lets start throwin out some names and ideas of what could be done and how it could be done for a first line center if Nedved can't be signed - some people kinda started with the Lindros, Bonk and Allison posts - but what other guys are there out there? Would a Brind'Amour work? What about Lang - would that be possible? And is Nedved even the guy that we want back the most? What do you guys think? I think that Nedved IS the guy we want the most - as he seems well suited to our team and to playing with Radek. After that I think Lindros would be interesting on our team - because when he's been healthy, he's still been a great player.
I like Nedved, just because he has proven that he could be successful and produce here. we can risk losing him, and then bring in another player who might not adapt to our system, leaving us with a case of the Dopita Oates virus. I think if we can sign Nedved then sign him, and let him help Hemsky round out his game.
Lindros is an intriguing possibility if he can stay healthy, but it would have to be an insentive based contract with some concussion clause.
Rolston and Nylander both might work, but once again, Id stick to Nedved.
Nedved seems like the best option to me. Conroy seems destined to stay in Calgary, Zhamnov has played really well in Philly and Rolston won't play in Canada. Hopefully Lowe makes a long-term deal soon..
