I understand not overpaying for Lecavalier but passing on Clarkson? The guy has size, is physical, brings leadership and will drop the gloves, is going to crush the net he brings everything one would want in a center. 6 million per year seems like a lot right now but keep in mind, the cap will go up soon again.
Nothing against Weiss and others but compared to Clarkson they would be pretty much MEH at best signings.
I could be wrong but he's not that big at 6'-1". Clowe at $3M/$4M is better fit than Clarkson at $6M.
I think that Kenny will go after Iginla/Clowe and Stalberg
Lilja, Lebda and Devereaux will be signed on July 5th.
