If this franchise cannot afford to miss a single playoff series then the franchise needs to be moved. We will have plenty of years in the future of missing the playoffs.
Where we are in the playoff race is irrelevant in this situation.
This franchise doesn't have the ability to acquire assets in any other form or fashion than draft (and then trading those drafted assets for others) and develop.
The Preds simply cannot take the chance have having one of it's most valuable assets simply walk away. We've shown little inclination to shop the FA market to replace that, so we're left with the alternative of waiting for another crop of talent to come along from the draft.
Also, there's no guarantee that any players we could acquire for Suter wouldn't help us into the playoffs this year anyway.
This would be much easier if we simply re-signed him.
