If he gives JAM an ELC, then we'd be at 50 contracts and wouldn't be able to sign Kreider for this season. We could sign him now, but his ELC wouldn't kick in until next season.

Of course, if Avery files his paperwork for retirement now, then we'd have 1 less contract, but he has no reason to do that, not while he's still collecting paychecks for doing nothing. And they aren't going to call up Avery, and give other teams a chance to claim him on re-entry. They don't want him playing in Hartford, no reason they'd want him playing in NY.

So yeah, neither of those players are an option.
