Precisely. The dead weight (Bertuzzi, Sammy, White, Colo) need to go. 8 mil right there that we could spend on a snizzity snipe snazzity.
I agree. Bert needs to spend the season on the LTIR (at least until after the deadline,) Sammy and Cola need to bought out and White (thanks for you service) can leave UFA. That would definitely free up $7.5M to use to our advantage. ( I sure hope Holland doesn't give Fil $5M...)
Someone should make a thread about next season's roster and we can get into deep discussion about it! There are a lot of decisions to make this off season for sure. IMO Andersson, Kindl, Brunner, Nyquist and Smith have all earned contracts and raises. Doesn't leave much unless we cut some salary, somewhere...
oh and BTW, Holland better draft correctly! I do NOT want to see ANY small skilled soft Euro type players this year, unless its a late round gamble. He needs to go big or go home in the first three rounds! I wouldn't mind seeing what Zykov would be all about, but would rather have Mantha, Rychel or Gauthier....on the D side I would love Santini or Bowey unless there is some miracle out there allowing us to snag Pulock. What we do not need is another leftie on the blueline, we need to draft and develop some righties who are big and mean! Heck, there is another thread idea...the draft predictions. I will stop now as I am derailing my own thread!
