One thing that's bugging me is the "we'll have tons of money!" argument. Please go to the UFA list for this year and tell me if there is anyone there you actually want to spend money on. This is a weak class outside of Suter (gone), Parise (if Suter and Weber leave...no chance), and Doan (he'll resign in Phoenix).
The only thing I could see us doing with that money is acquiring someone a la Brain Campbell that is useful but overpaid. I would LOVE an Eric Staal trade with Carolina, though it'd be a steep cost.
I think it is going to go down like this. Sometime the first week of June Suter is going to tell Poile that he is going to test the market. Poile is going to go to Weber tell him this and offer him A LOT of money. Weber is going to sign a long tearm large sum contract soon after. Poile is then going to trade Suters rights for a bag of pucks, trade SK for a bag of pucks, and then attempt to sign Rads. If Rads does not sign by the draft day they trade his rights as well for a bag of pucks. In the meantime they resign Gill or Bulls. They rest is up in the air.
