  1. A lot of teams will be upseet about this. He would have been a great add to any llayoff team looking to add depth. Also does this drive up the price on depth forwards?

  2. //shakes head//

    I just don’t get it. Miss the playoffs for two straight years, and four of the last five, so sign go out and sign all the same players. Shooing to be average at best.

  3. Also I guess just to add the leafs perspective into the conversation, how does this if at effect the grabovski situation?

  4. 4.75?!? Damn!!! I didn’t think he was THAT good! Wow! Good for him and his family, crazy money for him though IMO.

  5. Makes the Penguins look like genius’s
