Ultimately - numbers. The 5 guys I'd put in our top 6 all already have contracts; the new wing - a true scorer, makes 6. So, you sign SK you got 7 guys and one moves down..

However, if you move 1 of the 7 down, it does 2 things; one - takes a spot away from one of our kids - either Geoffrion or Klassen (or someone else who tears it up), and two, it costs us a whole lot more to have SK in that roster spot than either of those kids - probably $1 - $1.2 mil give or take.

So, in the end, I figure we're better off with the kid and the extra $1.2 mil spent on the winger than we are with SK and a winger that we got for less. Course, if there's enough cash for SK and a really good wing we take that, but it just seems that'd be a bit tight.
