    Langenbrunner and Arnott to the Blues

    not too bad for the Blues depending on money and term, looks like they are adding leadership to their young team.

    I don't mind the Blues and they have not had much success over the years.  I hope these moves work out for them.

              Past their prime hockey players for a cash strapped team.

    When you have a young team you do need some leadership to get them through the wilderness.  That is why Ryan Smyth is a good addition to the Oilers.  He can be a leader for all those talented kids and not let them get too discouraged if they still don't win a lot of hockey games.

    Ah, the Blues.  Team to one of my favourite former Bruins, Sobotka.  This is a young club with only Jackman (30) and McDonald (33) being members of the Blues' 30 and over club.  I follow your take on the leadership aspect as both are seasoned vets.

    Yep....they have not been factors for a few years now. Blues overpaid by about a million each....

    Again the Blues are paying a little more for leadership which you can't measure in points alone.  Also other than last year, both of these guys had decent years the last 4 or 5 years prior.  At this point in their careers they are not going to be the go to guys for points but they won't be expected to be.  If they remained unsigned into August maybe they could have picked them up a little cheaper but they also may not have been available if they waited.

    Not disputing their leadership capabilities (though neither have won much since early last decade) or production (though both have been declining for some time now). The price is the issue for me. Langenbrunner making as much as he did 4 years ago? Nonsense. Arnott and his experience worth more moneywise than Recchi's salary of last year. Ridiculous...

    THERE is my one year contract!

    I said 1 year, $2.5 for Arnott - he got 1 year, $2.8 ~ pretty close!  Then again, not with the Bruins.

    And your one year contract was given to a player whose skills have eroded . His production for the last two years combined was a whopping 56 points. He is also an older player ( 37 this year ). 

    These things were pointed out to you and you brushed them aside saying 1 year contracts are signed all the time. You are right ! But mostly for the reasons that were given to you as in Arnott's case ( old and/or a decrease in his abilities ).
