And it was a horrible mistake that yielded nothing for us. We can do without his 6 post-season points.

Schroeder and Hodgson can both play center so where one struggles the other will cover.

As for the 4th line center Gillis has been vocal about going out and getting a gritty backchecking PKing shutdown forward.

Sounds like Malhotra to me.

Demitra has no place on this team. He's useful, but he'll be useful elsewhere. No chance he gets $2.5M here. That's ridiculous.

and 2 years? Do you know he's 35? That means if he ends up retiring one year into the deal, we still have his cap hit for his last year here. No thanks. He'll get a one year, $2M offer from some NHL team with money or he'll go and play in slovakia.

Yeah, but when we signed him the first time we had exactly two guys who were capable at producing at a top 6 rate. Now we have 6 and better prospects. He doesn't fit a hole. Two years ago Taylor Pyatt, Steve Bernier and a much younger Mason Raymond were penciled in as 1/2 of the top 6 of this team. A slightly different situation IMO.
