Urbom and Gelinas aren't going to have any shot to crack our roster in the next two years unless they have a legendary training camp or we get decimated with injuries. They'll both be RFA by that time.

Both are NHL ready right now, I'd much rather use them as trade bait and get a young skilled forward than kill a year on Matteau's ELC or sign some scrub like Darche. Janssen and Barch won't be playing come playoff time, even after Henrique comes back we're still going to need bodies.
