Stay the course.

Trading any of our young players for a rental is the last thing we should do.

Richards becomes a UFA on July 1st. If we want him, we can try to get him then.

But more importantly not before we retain our RFAs. Our RFAs are priority #1: Dubinsky, Callahan, Anisimov, Sauer, & Boyle.

Sign Kreider, Werek, & Hagelin to Pro contracts.

Buying out Drury would be a bad idea, his contract is up after next season. There's no reason to be on the hook longer then needed.

Trading Rozsival at the draft for a late-1st/early-2nd would be great.

I'm on board with signing Richards as a UFA dependent on the contract length and if we are able to retain our young players long-term. If he prevents that, then he's not worth it.

And no high priced UFA defensemen. We are stacked in depth at defense. I'm especially confident in McDonagh's and McIlrath's future here.

A veteran on a cheap one-year deal as a stop gap would be fine. Eminger on a one-year deal, too.

Our young players, prospects, and draft picks are our top priority.

Stay the course.
