Bogo, Kane and Wheeler represent 3 of their 5 best players. Those 3 will still all be RFA in 2 years (based on current CBA) the 1st will likely have been a top 10 and possibly a lottery pick in a strong draft year. Malkin on the other hand will be an UFA who will go to the highest bidder, who almost certainly won't be the Jets. How are we better off? Malkin without our 2 best wingers and future top pairing d-man does not make us a contender. 2 years from now we are likely a much worse team.
