I still fear the possibility that they panic *again* and retain Connolly *again*.
I think the most intriguing question will be whether Pegula is willing to make a push for the big UFA's by front-loading deals and thereby carry real salary far greater than the players' cap numbers. For instance, I wonder if he'd offer Richards and 8yr, $60 mil deal ($7.5 cap hit), and make the final three years be for a total of $5 mil and the first five years for $55 mil. Even if Richards doesn't agree to it, I bet it'd get him (and his agent) thinking.
