Jones will likely re-sign. And Whitney loves it here, although at this point I am not sure if Tambo even gives him a decent offer.

I am fine with burning Gagner's 1 year. It doesn't give him much of a leg to stand on when he is back at the table.
They also lose at the draft (potentially... statistically likely)

If there was a season, you would probably be drafting top 10.. maybe higher... If there is a full season lock-out you will have one ball, and probably draft 20-30.

but...

Edmonton gets an extra year to develop there young guns (most playing together). Schultz gets to gain experience/chemistry with his new teammates before the NHL begins.
