Vaananen would be a pretty redundant addition. With White, Vishnevski, and Matvichuk, we really don't need another physical stay-at-home defender, especially considering that there are already seven NHL defenseman on the roster.

Enjoy your dream world. It's on schedule to come crashing down on or about November 1.

Ecklund's an idiot. I would have believed and wouldn't have minded Vaanaanen before we signed Rachunek and Vishnevski but I like Vishnevski.

I don't see Matvichuk getting traded. He's a little too old to be valuable to anybody else and we honestly can't package him with anybody to get someone good in return unless we give up one of our top forwards and a high draft which wouldn't make sense either.

Matvichuk plays 65-ish games this year and he'll be fresh for the playoffs.

Anyone hear the (great) song by Guggenheim Grotto "Ozzimandian"?? Ossi's name fits perfectily with the song.

Freeze just isnt worth it anymore.

He would have to take the league minimum for a guy with his years in the league.

He wouldnt be bad as a fourth liner, but how many fourth liners do we have or need?
Could he handle third line duties...possibly...but like I said how many Brylins can you have on one team?

I love the Freeze but he just wouldnt fit in on this team.

Theres just no room for Friesen. No longer a 1st or 2nd line player, doesnt seem to fit the shutdown line, and I dont think we would benefit from putting him on the fourth line. That said, would he play in Lowell if nobody picks him up? :noclue:

he will either not play at all or play nhl. The bluejackets picked up Peca in desperation, they said they still want to spend 1 mil more, maybe columbus.
