The decision comes down to the same thing -- Heatley (and eating Cheechoo contract in the minors), or Ehrhoff + Michalek.

When SJ traded Ehrhoff, weeks and weeks before they traded for Heatley, they signaled loud and clear what was happening. They moved him specifically to make room for Heatley. No other explanation for that move.

(Cutting the other quotes to save space, megabytes don't grow on trees, is what my granddaddy always used to tell me!)

Could you then also include Manny Malhotra to the equation? and maybe to a lesser extent Niclas Wallin? (maybe not: trade deadline pickup, less comparable to ehrhoff)

The Malhotra part was more of a 1-year replacement to Erhoff, I believe they wanted Jason Demers to be Ehrhoff's long term replacement...

And hell yeah, did he ever get ripped for it by some people. There's still one guy on this site we brings up this point to discredit him whenever he can.

I don't recall him getting ripped for that. It's a 7.5 million dollar contract, this guy better be the player to end all players because he's costing you a ton of cap space.

So... Owen Nolan wants to stage a comeback, would you sign him to a 1-year 1 million dollar contract?

I like the idea of a Nolan or a Guerin, but I'd like to see Regin get 20 minutes a night before that.

Stamkos trying to pad his goal totals early with the empty-netter Wink. That's how he tied for the Richard last year!

This kid's unreal. The 2008 draft could be on par with the 2003 draft in a few years.

And at least this time the top 2 picks will probably be the best players from the draft General Hockey Talk - Injuries, signings, factoids + other news from around the league - Page 64 54934
