Trade Phaneuf in the off season, don't pick up Kotalik or Staios. Without Kotalik, Stajan, Kostopolus, Babchuck, Staois and Hagman, that gives plenty of money to throw around. Yes, there are some holes in the roster as a result but then would Sutter have parted with Sjostrom, Nystrom, Boyd, Dawes, Pardy and Prust?
Just think, the cap space saved could have actually gotten the Flames someone worthwhile while the Devils and Kings fought over Kovalchuck. Edit, it would've had to be a trade, I forgot that the free agent pool this offseason was a tad dry. The biggest deals on the 1rst and 2nd involved below 40 point players.
Yes, it doesn't look great offensively in comparision but it also looks worse defensively. Just imagine Nystrom and Backlund on the PK.
