They don't HAVE to overspend on free agents. They can just carry a 13th forward. Hopefully they trade for someone decent rather than overspend for a scrub. And yes, I'm aware that the 4th line that would create would be the weakest, softest blah blah blah, I'm just crunching numbers.
Well my point was more that the Ducks had to spend money somewhere. If it wasn't on Souray they would have probably overpaid for someone else.

And to your point. IMO if all 4 of those players make the team, I expect the Ducks to miss the playoffs yet again. I see what you are saying, but my point was mainly that we have money to spend and this probably won't be the first player we overpay to come to Anaheim.
