Dammit, I was really hoping Gordon would be our 3rd line center.

When did Edmonton become a go-to destination for FAs? Did global warming turn it into a tropical paradise?

Where did Gordon go? Not tracking that one, though I saw Edmonton was trying to sign him.

Well, I guess if he wants to start his summers early... :roll:

Edit: At three years, not bad for him, I guess. I wonder if Gillis couldn't offer term?

It was down to Vancouver or Edmonton as of last night. Guess Edmonton offered up more money.

Apparently over $2m per.

That team had better have a big shopping day (ie. Gordon and Ference are just a start) if they're hoping to have success with a Dubnyk/Labarbera combo next year..

For Lamoriello's sake I hope last season was an aberration for Clowe, 'cause he seemed a slow shadow of himself. Otherwise, that's a steep price to pay for a slower banger. Hardly a replacement for all that Clarkson brought.
