I could see a Slater Koekkoek signing or maybe Grabner - guys at league min for 1 year. Otherwise, no big signings.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Jim_Benning_Almost</b></div><div>I disagree. I believe that we have no choice but to trade picks and/or prospects to unload contracts, however Sutter isn't the one we want to dump. The contracts going the othe way have to be Eriksson, Beagle or Roussel. These all span two years and give us added breathing room in 20-21 and 21-22 (which is the important year).
The above situation does a few things, 1 - it overpays JV, 2 - it underpays Gaudette (but they even themselves out), and more importantly 3 - assumes Ferland is on the LTIR, which he and his agent has both said he will be playing.</div></div>
Benning has made it clear that the concern is next year, not this year. The team will get worse before it gets better. We need to conserve our assets until next year when it counts, and move the bad contracts then. It costs less to move them in that season and it means more for the overall success of the roster.
Virtanen is overpaid in this build. Based on the Mangiapane signing this morning, he should get 2.6Mx2.
Gaudette is in a black hole RFA situation with no leverage, his contract likely is lower than we expect / an underpay.
