I also left money on the table to account for the raise letang would get the following season. Plus, this really hinges on the idea that Geno will take 8.7 again.

Back to Morrow, Flyers will offer him $6 million a year just to spite us
But you never know, the Cup changes everything, he could sign again if he fits and has fun, 3 years, $7 million would be good for both sides? might take more.

I had Francois Leroux flashbacks last night. Murray skates like kids on my son's mite team.
Nickname has to be Dump Truck, no? Make it so, Steigy.
