The alternatives: http://capgeek.com/u...s_type=ICE_TIME

That's a very weak defensive free agent pool right there. I think Holland will sign Kubina, as he tried to do previously.

Carle is not the solution.

Really interested in seeing the money too. Probably WAY too much.

hey that's fine guys, we didn't want to overpay Carle anyways. Lets see what he goes for.

What we need to focus on is going after Yandle.

But this gives more credence to the fact that Holland can't sit around and wait, other teams are not doing that, we need to make moves and make them now.

Good to hear that another overpayment (waiting to see details) deal is not done by us. Nice.

What were you saying again? Most people aren't blind and know obviously it's overpayment.

5.5 million is overpayment. My guess would have been 5

When he's maybe worth 3-4 if that. :P
