Questionable terms but he's a good addition to the mix, no question. Length is very risk and he's a winger, but if we add one center then we have a INCREDIBLY strong mix of wingers. This puts wingers along with defensemen in play for a trade, let's not forget that. My initial reaction was a bit negative but I'm warming up to it.

COLE?????? Come on.

We got a versatile forward who will improve the offense and not weaken us defensively.

Leino will play center if the Sabres strike out in their other pursuits.

Either they think Leino can convert back to center and play No. 2 (for the same price as Connolly without being Connolly), or they have a big trade or two in the works. It will be interesting to hear what Regier says.

They have plenty of pieces to trade now. Better to trade than overpay for Richards at this point. Regier stocked the cupboard...now it's time to trade some cans of green beans for a steak.

I hope this doesn't hurt our chances at signing our RFA's (Weber,Gragnani and Enroth)

not counting Sekera I think we will trade him.

****, this deal sounds horrible when you put it like that. Right now, I'm hating this signing.

Moving Morrisson and burying or moving Kotalik frees up plenty of space. They're in much better cap space than if they signed Richards to a gazillion dollar deal.

I don't think he's horrible defensively? Especially at wing...he was fine. And he'll bring some offense.

19 goals on a Philly roster with 438 different 25+ goalscorers....

My first reaction to hearing this news is that they are setting up a big trade. Maybe Ennis, maybe even Vanek is getting shipped out for a top quality center. We've stockpiled top 6 wingers, somethings gotta give.

Regier said he wanted to get a top 6 center. I have a strong feeling Boyes is on the way out. Leino replaces Boyes, IMO

Thanks for the sensible posting. I knew people would go a bit mad when we (inevitably) didn't get Richards.

Trying to think a few moves forward

Something involving Ennis and Boyes for top 6 C (Brassard? or maybe more...)?
Sekera for Filppula?
Or maybe even thinking about Briere is not out of the question.

Vanek-xxxx-Pominville
Leino-Roy-Stafford
Hecht-xxxx-Gerbe
McCormick-Gaustad-Kaleta

Or similar... with the defence + Miller - its certainly a team built to win now (or in 3 years )

This signing seems odd. I have to assume that there's more to come in the form of trades...

Gotta be trades coming. Boyes is as good as gone with Staff and Pommer on RW. And I think Ennis or a key piece on LW is gone for a center. Leino would replace Ennis on second-line LW.
