I think it would be best to package it for top prospects. Jagr and Whitney are old. But then again, Im assuming you guys have the cap to make a FA run next year
Yea I could see that too.
But what Joe seems to be doing is making Dallas competitive while rebuilding by using these 1-2 year veteran stopgaps.
We have a pretty strong core of prospects who are still 1-2 years away from jumping into the NHL. Guys like Fraser, Glennie, Fafska, Campbell, Nemeth, Oleksiak, Dillon, and R.Smith are up and coming but there is no need to rush their progress this season.
And if for some reason this team fails this season then we should be able to cash in big time at next year's deadline and gain a lot of draft picks and prospects for these rental players.
I'm not real sure about our exact numbers...but last I heard we were still 3-4 mil under the Salary Cap Floor for this season. So we should have plenty of cap room next FA after we resign RFAs like Benn, and Bachman
