Ullstrom / Frans / Nelson
Martin / Cizikas / Whoever!

That's a pretty hefty package for a couple of pending UFA's. While they probably won't sign here, having Tavares and someone like MacKinnon or Jones with the #1 overall pick then the decision to do the unthinkable and sign on the dotted line (even if they get to UFA) wouldn't be so unthinkable. Assuming the new CBA eliminates those ridiculous front loaded contracts, then the possible limits on contract length and salary difference per year would level the playing field for us to have a chance.

Then trade the likes of Okposo, Bailey, Mayfield and the next year's 1st for a stud d-man. The first overall is virtually untouchable IMO.
