<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Sagecoll</b></div><div>Totally Understand. It's going to be a tough market this year, The prices you listed might be enough for a 1 sided player like Vanek, but not too way scorers like Nash/Grabner.
If you'd rather someone cost controlled like Zucarello, we'd be willing to part for something like Honka, 1st next year + Ritchie probably with a low conditional pick if he resigns or you guys win cup. He'd probably be able to re-sign for under 5 mil and won't regress for awhile.</div></div>
My guess is we'll only buy if we can get a piece without having to give up a current roster player. Only caveat might be including Shore if the right player came back in return. Even that's slim given how young he is, and the potential seen last year from him. I just don't believe Nill will risk disturbing the chemistry that has taken some time to come together, especially considering how well we play when all cylinders are firing. Not to mention he's one of the most patient GMs out there, he'll either wait till they come back to his offer, or he'll roll with what he's got. Either way, should be a fun month, see how it all shakes out.
