I think that's an overreaction. The Preds are a pretty smart draft/develop team. They will limit their losses simply by the fact that they are not playing many players that much money. And they will have cap space and draft picks to prudently improve the current roster. I think they have a much higher risk of entangling themselves in a sticky situation if they match (unless they really are OK with losing $10-15 M on the team per year).
