very expensive agency

I can't say if Sather made the right moves on the first day of free agency. Did he get the best price for the best players? I have no idea, but I do know he scored the single hottest player available on the market, Wade Redden. I expect nothing less. I've been pining for Mr. Redden to join my Blueshirts since I first saw him, so I'm happy enough with his 6.5 million pricetag. Now if only Sather can work some magic to retain the very attractive trio of Jagr, Avery and Shanahan I'll be very happy. I know that's a little unrealistic, but he's gotta try for all three because the locker room will be a very somber place without them. Redden's almost as quiet as Drury and Gomez is no spokesman. Maybe Freddie will give all the interviews.
