You really think we let FLIP walk?? really?? I would call him our 3rd best forward!

Flip, Cleary, Brunner, Miller, Mursak are 5 contracts that expire.

Flip / Brunner are on our top 6, they will be resigned likely.
Seems we all like Miller, so he is resigned.
Mursak we want to give the chance to still? So maybe?
Cleary can improve this season and be resigned.

I do not see ANY positions on forward as being a lock to any player.
I.E. there may not be places for any rookies next year. That is if Holland really screws up. We need Tatar and Nyquist to get their chance now. Get them some experience and THEN do one of 3 things.

Release them, trade them, or sign them for longer. (seems dumb to do the first 2 options without giving them a full season in the NHL).
