Even if Pronger tries to make a return, I still target Suter. IF you succeed at getting Suter (huge and unlikely IF), then you adjust roster from there. For me, this could mean trading an RFA Voracek or letting him walk if the compensation picks were right.

We have an extraordinary luxury with how tremendous Wellwood/Couturier/Read/Schenn/Simmonds has looked. We could easily (assuming the cap cushion going in for rookie bonuses), have many forwards making less than 1-1.5M per year.

No, I don't want to trade or lose Jake. I also do not want to rely on Pronger being there either. His cap hit is such that we really don't need to rely on it if we play it right. With Timmonen coming off after next season or resigning at a reduced cap number, we'll still be looking good with Suter.
