These FAs need to dial back their expectations a bit... with salary cap getting across board reduction it basically equals a salary decrease vs value for all player contracts going forward.

Why? Just to be nice? Morality? GMs are signing these guys.

We know Holland doesn't like paying market prices for free agents, so I don't see us signing Horton at that price.  Not sure if we should either.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

They are hurting themselves long term. Great, you get your big contract. But if circumstances go downhill you will never be able to sign with another team. You will be another overpriced has been who fades away. But I guess they get their money.

that's verging on all star money, I can see 5 mil, but not 6. Maybe if he is willing to be talked down I would take him for 5

That seems a little steep for a guy with injury problems.  Those problems aren't going to go away as he gets older either.

I'd be unsurprised to see a Canadian team shell out that dough for him.

It seems like a lot of people here think we are going to get a top free agent this year for less than 4 million. If we want a Clarkson or a Horton we are going to have to pay for them. Neither of those guys are going to go for less than 6 million. People need to get that through their heads on here.

Right! Hudler gets 4 mil per. Flip gets 5 mil per. But we are going to nab Horton for Franzen money. Sure guy.
