A guy like Winnik obviously, but guys like Winnik are available come July and August in the remainder bin of more competitive teams that are cap bonked from re upping their star players. Even better, at that point they're amenable to sign one year contracts at reasonable cost, just to stay in the show.

AND ... they are motivated to play for a decent contract next year
AND ... you can get stuff for them at the deadline.

I'm all for the idea of rounding out the roster with a couple leftover vets in September.

That's right - I'm not going to rush this choice as I quickly regretted my last purchase - Bryan McCabe.

Ouch, yeah that's not a jersey you want to keep an eye out for.

That's my point. You still need a team, leaders to mentor young kids. You can write off a few years, you don't disappear by magic for that time and reappear 3 years later with a new team.
Do you prefer to have Kessel and Phaneuf to show kids the way or a guy like Winnik?
Pretty easy to answer IMO.

Winnick is 30 years old and will want three or four years. That's a lot for a mentor when the team is looking to get younger and acquire picks.

Yeah, that's the kind of guy you want to sell high on. Like a Bolland type situation, yeah he's valuable but not the time to commit further to him.

I think this was only our third win of 2015. So we're tanking beautifully.

Thought for sure there'd be a trade today.

I like Winnik, but cheap bottom 6 guys are always available now. That's what makres the Clarkson deal so disastrous.

Trade Winnik.

Posted this on Garth's blog:
With Gorges out, you guys need a veteran d-man to lead your kids....Nonis should be on the phone with Murray offering Robidas to fill the hole.

*That's my best Garth impersonation, minus the spelling mistakes.

If the last few years has taught you anything, it should be that we suck in March, and the only one of our guys who performs in April is Reimer...

They made those? Terrible business acumen if so.

Lipstick gets the first player jersey crown simply on the merit of being how we got rid of that fat chalupa.
