    at this point i'm starting to wonder why i'm not seeing the sens in on Legwand. it's getting thin out there on FA for C's.
    he'd be a good enough fit to center the 2nd line and gradually fall to the 3rd as zib looks ready.

    He would not be nice.....bad SD, BAD!

    Everything you need to know about Vrbata can be summed up by his stats record.

    Guy is fairly useless everywhere but in Phoenix....its actually kind of amazing.

    Takes time to make a trade when it has to be salary/in salary out.

    Cue the "5x4 contract for Grabo is awesome!" comments from Yost. Guy is brilliant.

    "What buyout?"

    I'm not a huge fan, but I could be on board with that move, on a short term deal.

    We're probably in a holding pattern until this 'almost completed trade' happens, tho.

    Grabovski is a pretty good underrated player, just because Nonis is an idiot and bought him out doesn't really change that.

    Isles don't get much luck with FA either.

    I would give Grabo a 2-year deal, no questions, even at 4-5 mil. At 4, no chance. Guy needs the incentive.

    Well Islanders need to give more term and/or $$ to entice people to sign there, easier to give term. Gotta do something I guess.

    Nothing will top Niskanen as the biggest buyout candidate.

    Interesting, wonder if they negotiated the term together. Do they have the same agent?
