So what does that leave us with? Trades and prospects. I'm starting to feel that we'll have to trade a couple of wingers for a 2C and the only FA moves we'll make will be bad ones.
We have to sign at least some players just to get to the cap floor. I agree though, this is a terrible market to have infinite cap space in, the only guys who are worth overpaying are Parise and Suter.
