Cogliano is an RFA likely at an impass with Edmonton regarding a raise and without arbitration rights, but Stempniak is a UFA after refusing to take Phoenix's offers leading up to July 1st and now finding no market anywhere for his asking price.

While Stempniak is more of a shoot first type of guy, which is needed in our lineup, both he and Cogliano are wildly inconsistent and IMO we can do without.

Also have to remember we are at the 50 contract limit right now, but have three ELC's eligible to slide this year opening up the possibility of adding 3 more contracts for this season.
