A is the right way to do it, but historically they have overwhelmingly chosen option B

hopefully he's saying that this year they acknowledge that they can't fill all their needs so their going to lean more towards A, and try to make better decisions to more adequetly fill a hole on the team, rather than making a half-assed attempt to fill all of them

The UFA activity will depend on what happens with Redden or perhaps some other trades around the draft we have no idea about. What if they are thinking they can move up? Or down?

Not sure what you expect him to say. If he was my AGM, I'd tell him to keep his mouth shut.
