Who moves up to play on the first pairing ?
I don't see where all that production is going to come from at D from our current roster.
If a UFA has to be signed to play on the first pairing its going to cost almost as much as keeping Garrison. Matt Carle, Filip Kuba, Sheldon Souray, and Sami Salo. So lets say you sign one of them for 3 million. What are you going to do with that extra 2 million ? Is it worth downgrading from Garrison to one of those guys ?
It's to hard to tell at this point because as good as Garrison was last year, we really don't know how good he'll be next season which is why signing him for 5 million is a gamble. Thanks to that Feaster fool, he may have set the bar at 5 million with his signing of Wideman.
