If signing Suter and Parise would have put us over the cap by more than 10%, without dumping Michalek, we probably couldn't have afforded them in the first place...but, even with that, Michalek could easily be dumped for nothing/picks before finalizing one of the deals. Or, even waiting until July 1st, Shero would have called Suter's camp, immediately found out he wasn't interested, and definitely knows there's no rush to unload him. Maybe is Suter's camp seems interested along with Parise, then you dump him.
But it was a completely unnecessary risk and we're worse team for it today. I just want a reporter to press him on why it was necessary to make the move then and for what was gained from it.
Something like the 3rd round pick for Hamhuis' rights except worse!
