If he signs there I hope the Leaves get hit with tampering charges.RoyalDude wrote: Well, I dearly would love Clarkson but he apparently wants to go back home to Ontario to the Leaves.
Agreed on both counts.RoyalDude wrote: Simmonds would be nice as he is tough as nails but no way Philly is trading him.
Actually Clowe is the guy I'm hoping for... if the Rags don't re-sign him.RoyalDude wrote: They don't necessarily have to fight and be undisciplined lunatics out there taxing your PK unit all game like slow as a moose Ryan Clowe.
Hear he was asking the Sharks for $34mil over 8 years.
He'd probably settle for $32.
Me likey $4mil cap hit.
And hey, if he eventually starts sucking due to old age you simply buy him out.
To buy him out at age 36, six years from now, would cost something like $1.33mil for 4 years.
And what's the salary cap gonna be at that point... like $100mil??
More importantly, we win Stanley at some point in the next coupla years with what we have + assholes.
Did I mention Ryan Clowe HATES Joe Thornton with a passion.
