Well I typed up a huge response to this, had another window open, came back to this one and it refreshed, deleting the whole thing, so heres a cliff notes version haha.
They wont move Erhoff to one of their main competitors for that 8th spot, as well as a divisional rival.
Regehr and Leopold fit this team perfectly, and they both expire this year. They would be solid Cowen replacements in the top 4.
Regehr is probably a little overpaid at 4 million, so that might lower his value. But he is one of my favorite players, a physical beast like Volchenkov. Aka the type of player you win with in the playoffs.
I wonder how enticing Da Costa, and / or Petersson, plus a 3rd or something is for Regehr? Da Costa and a 3rd is probably better than Petersson + 3rd, but would that be enough (rivals have to overpay)
