I don't see how keeping all 3 is smart on a budget team like ours. Let' just be optimistic for a second and say all three sign for terms of 4+ years. I'm just throwing out estimated numbers of what I think they would get.


Weber- 7.75-8

Suter-6.5-6.75

Rinne- 6.25


Is it really smart to commit nearly 20 million to 3 players for our organization? Yes, with those 3 the team will always be competetive but I highly doubt they would every get over the hump they have been stuck on the last few years. That's just too much money spent on D and goaltending. The money should be spread out on a more balanced approach.
take out goaltending altogether ... we have one of the better goalie coaches in the league, hands down
