JVR doesn't have the value he once did. He got a pretty fat contract for a guy with 47 career goals and might not be the most durable of players. He had one hot playoff series...so did Andy Delmore.
Coburn, Meszaros, Schenn, and Grossman gives us a very nice group of defensemen all locked up for a bit (2 seasons for Mesz, 4 for the rest) at a reasonable cost on each one. Add in Timonen and whoever, and that's a nice group of d-men. Having a PP specialist would be nice...maybe another trade could be in the works. I would love to get Streit from the Islanders.
