It's that if neither of them pan out (which isn't too far from reality)... there's really nobody ready to jump up and take their place.
There's a revolving door of 4th liners to step in and not much else.
That means either giving up assets and seeing what's available on the trade market.
Or hoping Lou can make out like a bandit with players on waivers again.
My point is, there's too much up in the air regarding the players we currently have to hand out a contract to a guy whose production has steadily been going down the toilet.
We could always go the UFA route though. Unless you're strictly talking this season only. If there is one.
