Personally i think its a great gamble.
Do Weircoch, Methot, or Benoit know what NHL playoffs look like?
also keep in mind as much as i want to win the cup its not like we favorites heading into this year, we are a good up and coming team that is still a fun underdog that may do damage.

JB's salary is for this year and next and frankly we may need him to hit the salary floor next year

its a one and a half year gamble where perhaps we end up with a very useful player that we resign for significantly less than his current contract.

I dont really see any downside to this other than spending Melnyk's money.
