I don't see any player on that list that I would shed salary for. Arguably we might find a depth player like Ryan Johnson, say, who ended up being better than the last one or two players on our roster, or a veteran depth defenseman for the #8 slot who is better than Weber/Picard/Carle. But not by enough to outweight the negative sides of the tradeoff (i.e. camp competition, prospect graduation/development for at least one or two players).

I would just pass at this point. We picked Picard and Halpern off the scrap heap, that basically fills the quota. There are sound reasons why those two were picked and others still on the list weren't.
