Hm, at the same time, there is a big risk with this scenario too.

You squez three players in under the cap with low short term deals, all of a sudden you stand there again and again and again over the coming years. You want to be able to give these kids "Marc Staal" type of 5-year contracts. Instead of 2.5 for 2 years you want to be able to give them 3.9 for 5 years. You risk loosing them for nothing in a hurry with those short term deals.

I am just saying, sometimes its better to give yourself room and get a good return for a player instead of just trying to get by.
