My thought as well....the Isles and Rangers are planning a run at him...no way i just let them have him without a fight.
I think Philly fits that bill with Hart and Talbot in the crease another year of experience for the team and 3rd line center...
...and if they hire his old coach....Q it could give them a leg up or at least an advantage.
There are a few options on the market who i would kick the tires on.
One thing i don't want
On the Panarin and Coach Q front, I for one am not concerned with the Rangers, making a run at them; my gut is telling me that the team to watch is Florida with Talon as the GM. They say Tallon might make a run for his old coach, and in turn Panarin would go and join Q in Florida.
I think that Panarin wanted to go back to Chicago to be with coach Q; but when Q was fired, Panarin decided to go the UFA route, and wait and see where Q goes. So my guess would be whoever signs coach Q, a
Yeah, I wonder what it would take to get a guy like Carter. I also wouldn't want to overpay for him. He's not getting any younger, and he's on contract for another three seasons after this one. That's a hard sell.
I'm not opposed to the idea in theory though. It would be nice to finally have a true sniper on the team for the first time in forever.
Shouldn't be much.
They have 18 guys signed already and only 8.2 mill in cap space with Tyler Toffoli, Forbort, Ladue and a backup goalie needing to be signed.
So they need the cap dump. So as i said maybe a draft pick or maybe a kid who needs a new deal in return should do it.
