Who knows? He can be a part of the solution(as in he stays). There are so many possible ways to keep him on this team. Give him primary PP time, he can act like a Kesler for our PP, we don't have that type of presence.
E.g. Just look at the Kings Primary PP unit, 4 FWDs and a Offensive/Complete D.
For us it could look like :
Another possibility is to give Staal, Dupuis as a winger on his 3rd line and let Crosby play with play with Tango and Sullivan.
No way, no how, not even a remote consideration by anyone. If the players go into negotiations asking that the cap be eliminated, there won't be any hockey until they back off that demand. The NHLPA, as a whole, are taking a pay cut, there is no doubt about that.
