This is clearly being done intentionally. Flood, Festerling, & Kulda leaving allows the TNSE regime to begin grooming younger players, a new crop as it were. It allows Melchiori, O'Neil, and perhaps Chiarot/Sol/someone else the chance to step into the regular lineup full time. Postma on a one-way deal also allows Redmond to move into that #1 spot.

The IceCaps will probably struggle for awhile but grooming the new guard is not a bad thing. An added bonus will be that Pasquale will see a ton of pucks.
