In regards to Schenn, hes a core piece going forward and hes a young defender who will mature into a solid player give him more faith. Grabo is a lock going forward for me good solid 2 way player if it was a high pick in the draft I mighta reconsidered but i doubt that was the offer! MacArthur is expendable
Presumably, a team either trying to get in or trying for a run would have made the offers. That puts the picks anywhere from 12-15 (for a team on the verge that fails) or 16-26 for a cup run. I don't see any of the mains trading for any of those players (i.e. nyr, detroit, van, boston).

I love Grabo, and resigning him is the right thing to do, but we're not winning anything how we're going while he is under contract.

I don't see Mac as being in the long term plans for this team once our young guys on the Marlies are ready for prime time, and Kadri could have easily moved into his spot the rest of this year and replaced him.
Agreed. I think most people like Mac, but it's business.

We have 4 players that are on the verge of coming into the NHL, not to mention 3 million dollar armstrong in the press box, an extra NHL d-man sitting out every night, etc. We have more then enough to replace them. Clearing the player space to help the young guys develop can't hurt.
