We’ve only acquired the rights to negotiate with Goodrow. We have a week or so to sign him or he hits the market. The problem is he’s reportedly looking for 6 years. I like him as a player but you cannot be giving a 4th line guy that kind of contract. Anything more than 4/12 is an overpay.
I am SO happy that Howden is gone. An addition by subtraction move if there ever was one, and to get a 4th rounder for him makes is that much sweeter. And acquiring the rights to Goodrow was another terrific move by Drury. Hopefully we can get him signed, but if not it only cost us a 7th round pick. I'll take that any day of the week.
