What would have happened with all the young players? Would we know what we know about Sutter or McBain?
It would have been fine to sign one of the top guy last season....it just would have meant not wasting money on Cole and likely finding a cheaper alternative to Aaron Ward. And we would have had 1 less spot to fill this offseason. Sutter would have been in the lineup regardless. They didnt hand him a spot, he played his way into one. And McBain would have still made an appearance at the end of the season
