We definitely didn't blow it by not overpaying for ANYONE.
That said, however there could have been more addition by subtraction. Buh-bye to Wolski not enough. If SJ etc was going to give bupkus for Avery but get him off our roster, we should have done it.
I now have GAGLine correctly reminding me we have 49 contracts out of 50, the last on wait + see for Kreider this year --- so no reason not to move Avery.
Should have moved Zuc. Defense aside, MZA does not have enough foot speed to create separation to be offensive threat. Somebody takes him 4th line checking and for shootout, we're better off with the space.
Depth is useful, of course, and we needn't spread the D corp too thin; but could we have dealt any 2 or 3 out of
plus some throw-in, and upgraded 1 D or 1 F position?
