It's too bad about us having Weiss...

Statsny's looking pretty good right about now.

What's the likelihood on getting Stastny? Can we agree on 0%?

I thought I read somewhere on here after signing our RFAs and picking up a defenseman there wouldn't be enough room to sign another big name FA. Although I could be wrong.

No, we're not in on Stastny... Did we really need another thread for this? It couldn't have been discussed in any of the other dozen UFA threads?...

No, because then it would get lost in the shuffle with the, "It's a shame we have Franzen, Vanek would be sweeeet" posts.

Do you want a second line center for well north of $6 mil per on a long term deal?

It seems as though we're set up front - it's on D where we need help.

I'm hoping Weiss will be healthy...As of now we can't say he was a bust.

It's not at all that I wouldn't want a second line center for around $6M or so per on a long term deal, because I absolutely would. However, I wouldn't want a third line center making $4.9M for the next 4 seasons. I would love to have a guy like Stastny but when we already have a capable number 2 center in Weiss. And yes, for all you naysayers, Weiss is very capable and he will show his worth this season when he puts up 55+ points.

Even if he put up 60 points and 25 goals?

That wouldn't be too impressive and I'm more interested in what he can do in the playoffs, I just don't see the guy ever being a difference maker for us.

60 points for a second center is very good. We can't have a team full of superstars anymore.

Yeah, I'm not sure how realistic it is to expect more than that from a 2nd line center. That is why they are 2nd line centers.

If they scored 70-80 points, they would be 1st line centers (see: Datsyuk, Zetterberg).

Even the cup winning Kings had centers with these numbers:

Kopitar. 70pts

Carter. 50

Richards 41

I don't know if they played center exclusively or how many games they played, but I think balanced scoring across the roster is more important.

Anyone here mentioning Filppula being a Stastny is ridiculous. The guy was nothing more than a 3rd line guy that couldn't take a hit nor throw one. I don't care if he scores 50 for Tampa cause he would never have scored 50 for us, ever.

Well I would be pretty happy if he did actually score 60points and was decent in the playoffs but I don't see either one of those happening.

You know he did score over 50 points for us right?

Once. Every other year he was hurt or ineffective.

More like hurt but still extremely effective or low on the depth chart or playing with players that barely belong on the team let alone in the top 6.

I like to completely disregard facts and reality to make myself feel better, too.
