Honestly guys, I don't think this is the off season to reinvest the cap space. I see Holland signing a couple D-men to 1, maybe 2 year deals just to tie us over.
There is just simply no one out there that you want to latch yourself onto right now. If we throw big money at the FA pool this year, we are only hurting ourself next year when real decisions need to be made.
I don't think its practical next year to plan for a stanley cup - it may just be a season to coast.
martyrme19, I agree. This makes next season a rebuilding year, whether Lids comes back or not. I'd rather Kenny be Kenny and show some patience. 1:Re-sign Salei for a year at a reasonable price. 2:If he makes Big Rig a offer make it slightly LOWER than reasonable. This makes it easier for Hudler to become trade bait. Maybe bring up 2 D'men from GR, see what they do as this would be an opportune time. Spend SOME of the cash on ONE FA with a eye on the next year OR it would give Kenny the opportunity to do what he did at the trade deadline next season, similar to when he picked up Stuart.
