This is by far the worst UFA class in a while. Everyone's going to get overpaid. This is a year that most teams should be conservative with signings, but someone will take a chance. I'll be fine if that isn't us.
Imagine a Wings team loaded with cheap young talented players a few years down the road, but too hamstrung with Weiss and Green type contracts to make constructive additions and make a cup run.
This. Look at how Weiss gets killed here. Living close to the DC market, Green is routinely killed here by fans for his defensive lapses. He's going to get 7mil+ for 5 years at least. I'm quite alright seeing what the young defensemen in the system have to offer.
