Just bring up Kreider and release Wolski. Saves $2M+ on the cap while actually filling with talent.
Those 4 create a vacuum, and a serious problem within a team where we are trying to hang onto our young guys as they develop. What happens when Stepan, Anisimov, Sauer, McDonagh come under contract again? Would you trade those 4 players for Parise right now, to be replaced by league minimum players like Deveaux?
