Coburn is worth that 3.2, he's a stud.

By my count, that would be $1.45 million per year OVER what we will be paying Ethan Moreau next season.

Hey; we had several "under" examples, so it's only fair that we have an "over" example.

yeah, Gonchar is going to be making 3 and 2/3rds times what Moreau will be making,

and for 3 times as long.

Yes. Easily. Not for a high-value return, but he can be moved.

I think the real question is--who will be the first player worse than Ethan Moreau signed above the Moreau Line?

Michalek to Pittsburgh per TSN. Over the Moreau line.

That would suck a whole lot more if we were actually in their division. Or conference, for that matter.

If we are talking about a token 7th rounder, I could care less. Howson might as well get an instant lottery ticket.

So now it's not that he can't be moved, but that he can't be moved for something of high value? Criminy, but you've got impossible standards.

Oh, and the phrase is "I couldn't care less", for the record.

The defensemen are the most interesting thing to watch today. Could result in something falling to us. Remember, that's how we ended up with Tyutin.

To be fair he's about 30 times the player Moreau is.

Probably in the minority, but that's the contract I wanted the CBJ to give Gonchar. Much better then the Redden contract. I think the Sens did well, but that's just me.

Moving guys for speculative 7th round picks only helps out JMac Jr.'s pocketbook. It does nothing to help the team in the short or the long term outside of that. So, from my perspective, an NMC on a guy with trade value versus no NMC on a guy with little to no trade value is a wash. From JMac Jr.'s perspective? Well, I couldn't care less.

The Pens are a different team without Gonchar, look at the PP numbers when he was hurt, dreadful. He will be missed by the Pens.
Maybe a tad too much money to pay him, but he is a great player. The Pens do not win the Cup without Gonchar.

I agree. Fair, reasonable term and money.

Michalek to the Pens sucks, I wanted him. The fact Commodore makes almost as much as him is sad.

Which raises a good point. Perhaps with regards to defensemen it should be called the "Commie line."

Agreed.

But there were fewer defensemen the year Commie was signed, and fans were anxious for Howson to make signings.

Gonchar is money.

Only reason it's a little much is the injury history. Having said that, I'd rather have Gonchar for 60 games then Campbell for 82.
