Personally I find it far more impressive to not have to sell off guys at bargain prices, that you signed in the first place just to free up cash to do it all over again with different guys.
Probably making a push for Boyle and Iginla.
Forgive my ignorance since I don't know much about the Bolts blueline, but wouldn't Yzerman try to sign Niskanen?
EDIT - unless of course it's already known among GM's that 1 team has the 'inside edge', and more or less has a verbal agreement with Niskanen's agent - then I could see Stevie Y shopping for someone else.
