This organization just isn't deep enough to absorb that type of loss without seriously regressing.
Not sure why this seems to be so hard for so many to understand. NHL teams dont necesarilly lose assets to the UFA market; they also gain cap space to sign a player to a contract, bring up a young player in the minors, or use that cap space to extend a player on the current roster. Losing a player to UFA does not mean a team loses an asset for nothing.
