SoS - Sather admits to nothing. If he went the save route, he'd just cite economics in the new hockey era make it difficult to retain and attract star players. The scary part is that in the end, he may end up overpaying for a "top six" forward since this team currently has about two signed and he needs at least one more.
Sather had his window, with a 100 point scorer costing under $5MM against the cap, which bought him three years - and here we are now with a big question mark. There is a bunch of young assets stockpiled - let's see what he decides to do with them.
I hardly think this team is short on centers. Gomez, Drury and Betts are solidified on this team. Dubi is great, but AA is making huge strides in the AHL and could definitely make a push at spot on the 3rd line this year.
I think if Dubi gets moved, it'll be for a scoring winger for Gomez.
