    Commodore... $3.75 for a slow, defensive dman. Makes Finger, who is younger and all around better, a steal.

    Yeah but, you don't really know Finger... He is younger, but IMO hasn't proved he's worth that kind of money...

    Commodore may not be worth that type of money, but at least you know what ayou are getting...

    Hey, would you turn the money down?

    He may not have proved he's worth it, but he didn't prove he isn't.

    Scores. Just like that. LOL. Redden pots a fairly nice goal on a 5 on 3 against some European team.

    Not surprised an Ottawa-Centric board would say Redden.

    On the other hand, even thought I didn't have to suffer through his play the last couple years, I have to agree with the majority. That was a HORRIBLE signing.

    Hopefully, an opinion without bias here...

    I like Fisher. I would like to have him on my team.

    He has not nearly justified the contract though. Maybe if he could stay healthy?

    Seriously, he is well overpaid.

    It's tough for me, because Redden is almost a no-brainer, but Jose Theodore @ $9M gives me pause...

    Yeah I agree it's a little high for him, but it's not out of the ordinary I don't think... He has the potential to turn it around... Washington might be a good spot for him... and plus it is only 2 years if it dosen't work out...

    Redden 6!! freakin years! I couldn't believe it then and I still can't believe it! LOL
