Florida offered the contract plus a second round pick. What if we offer the Datsyuk contract plus Pulk and a mid tier pick. So we lose Pulk, rid the contract and give up a 5th round pick or something (or maybe 4th rounder)... Would that sweeten the deal? Or would we be giving up too much?
It sounds like we're talking with Arizona and I believe that by taking back pronger we won't have to give up as much because we save Arizona from actually dollars being paid which is an advantage for them. This would significantly drive the price down in my opinion
If we could get some help on the top 2 lines would love to have a third line of Abby-Z-Pulk. Pulk gets to play with a great corner guy in Abby, a strong playmaker in Z. I think that could be a deadly third next year. Plus obviously PP time will help if he is utilized for his one timer. Only takes a few goals from that dot for teams to respect him and take him away. That will open up more for the other 4 guys.
I believe the guy could get 20+ next year in this role
Another though, that miscue by Mrazek reminded me a lot of Howard!
You can't blame mrazek man he let in 1 damn goal. It's like a pitcher getting s*** on for allowing 1 run and losing. No run support. This team can defend and a lot of times get quality chances but man they cannot score and that's the biggest problem. Not gonna get any easier with Pavel gone
