I guess if he's still sitting around in Jan/Feb, I could see them fitting him in on a 1 year, $10M contract.
I believe about 10% of what Fox Sports predicts.
It would be nice, but I'm more inclined to got for a bit of a lesser utility type player, and see how Billy Hamilton does if they invite him to ST.
But... Castellini HAS said in the past the money is there for the right players.....
