In response to shuperman's comment:
I agree but i dont think stuart is a top 4 on a cup contender. im pretty sure with all the Girardi, Daley, Buff rumors they will be in on all top 4 guys. Girardi would be a fantastic fit. I want Daley the most bc hes a top end guy and can skate. Should be interesting to see who they land.
Shupe, at the end of the day i think Slats will hang onto Girardi.... as for Buff, there's no doubting his offense but his defensive play apparently leaves alot to be desired not to mention he wouldn't come cheap....
Daley would be an ideal choice but don't see why the Stars would move him because not only might he be their best rearguard but has a very manageable contract in the coming years....
too bad Joe Nieuwendyk's no longer the gm or PC might've been able to take advantage just like the Penguins did when they acquired Neal & Niskanen in exchange for Goligoski....
more realistic targets due to their ufa status could be guys like Timonen, Quincey, Willie Mitchell, Nick Schultz or Stuart....
i think daley would cost a lot. Buff is a special animal. Is very playoff proven and like daley would cost a lot. If philly is shopping guys(doubt it since they are trying to make playoffs) i would like Timonen or Coburn. Quincy and Stuart arent top 4s in my eyes and i like stuart a lot. Mitchell is gonna be part of LAs playoff drive.
San has been singing Tallinders praise and i agree. Likely a 4th pick. How about Volchenkov in nj. How about Bieksa in Van. Campbell in Florida. Lots of guys. We gotta get one.
