Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Lyle Richardson of Spector's Hockey,
Here’s my listing of ten NHL players who are risky gambles via trade or free agency.
R.J. Umberger: His performance has declined over the past couple of years and he was a healthy scratch late in the season. He also has three more years at $4.6 million per left on his contract. Unless the Blue Jackets pick up half of that, he’s a risky acquisition.
David Legwand: Another player whose stock definitely declined following the trade deadline. Though he tallied a combined 51 points this season with the Predators and Red Wings, he went pointless in the playoffs and was a fourth-line winger by the time the Wings were bounced from the first round. He’s not worth over $5 million annually.
