    Default Will Dean Lombardi go shopping in the Bargain Bin Tomorrow?

    Who thinks that Dean might take a run at Volchenkov or one of the other bought out players tomorrow, trying to convince them to take a small contract to come west to a championship team?

    Based on where we are, I don't see him moving roster players out, but if he could add a veteran forward or defensemen for closer to the league minimum than their contract, I think he might do it.

    Thoughts?
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    The only problem with the veteran D help is that nobody that's been bought out is anyone that he has a history with. Hard to see it. Not saying he won't kick some tires but off the top of my head I just can't see him swooping.

    I can see him getting another low risk/cheap stay home defensman (Schultz). And depending on what happens to King, he may get another winger.

    So long as we stay injury free thru traning camp, I do not see any free agents being brought in from the outside at this time. McNabb & possible Campbell (if resigned RFA) will be given 1st shot to step in this year.

    Wasn't there some talk about the Kings looking at Erhoff at the deadline last season? I think somebody will swoop him up for more than we can afford, but i'd imagine Dean would at least make the call. Considering the guy's age, and obvious desire to head to a contender, id think we might have a snowball's chance in hell at him.

    Where the hell would you put this player? We have too many guys we'd have to put on waivers as it is, and there's no money to pay them. Unless there is an accompanying trade, there's nothing tondo but bring back 95% of a championship roster.
