We get Connolly/Lombo/Stekel off the books, Another year off Komi which may make him more attractive to move when Hockey resumes. And our prospects get a full year to just play AHL hockey. Without the pressure of yo-yoing up and down to the big club. If we get another lottery pick out of it - it will be a dream come true.
Burke would have succeeded at rebuilding through the draft despite his every attempt not to LOL.
(If only we had hung on to Sequin/Hamilton/Rask)
Sure would've liked to have traded MacA for that 1st rounder now!
His trade record is better than his UFA signing record.
So why would you want something that would create nothing but UFA's????
Logic does not compute.
