That, or we'd need to make a trade to get another RW.

I'd be overjoyed if he got a Skinner/Hall contract.

He's already gotten more points than Krejci, and his defensive play is great for his age, he almost deserves 5.5-6 now..
Thomas will be in breach of contract. He won't be paid no matter what. He will count against the cap no matter what, but you don't collect when you breach a contract.
