Wolski is working with Underhill, I highly doubt they plan on buying him out now. They probably told him what they want him to do and he is doing it to prove to Sather and Torts he will do whatever they want from him to turn his career around.

After Richards there are some options

1st line LW:
Do we bring back Prospal? Such a huge risk, I see them going after Jussi Jokinen, Andrew Brunette (who would be a stop gap and has played well with Gaborik in the past) or possibly Gagne or even Erik Cole

Puck moving d-man:
Is Erixon going to run our PP with Richards? Do they want Pitkanen? He has Sather written all over him and may be too costly for the Canes, but not for us if we buyout Drury and go with 2 cheaper kids up front (Hagelin/Thomas/Zucc) as opposed to a costly UFA 1st line lwer and medium range 3rd line winger
