Fair enough --- but only if that's too many times a repeating pattern!
If we dump guys like Avery, replacing them with, like Werek,
move guys like Gilroy (in the right deal of course, not a give away for nothing) for cheaper home growns,
and tweak some cap by moving our reasonably priced D Girardi for an even better trade up
we can retain enough player assets to maintain adequate depth
then you may have enough room to do this once or twice.
We should sign Richards, but but with aim to contract which safeguards us if he doesn't produce.
We still can look at something for Hedman, not that TB is looking to give him away, but they may be open to a good offer;
and possibly one more big deal.
Depending upon what is involved and how much cap is in the picture, a discounted Malkin might be worth the gamble.
