So for our top 5 skaters and goalie that is 37 million dollars of a 64 million dollar cap. We are going to continue to have inconsistency with depth so long as that is the case. The only solution is to mix good veteran signings with ELC kids.

But what i'm saying is we asked for this. Years on I've been reading that we have a team full of third liners, all depth and no world class talent. Over the last 4 years we picked up three separate franchise players from three different organizations and have them playing together. That's tough to do, and since we aren't a team that tanks, this is a unique circumstance with that sort of ability on our roster. Now that we have the talent, we'll have to deal with a bit of a ragtag outfit in the bottom six.
I'd much rather have an incompetent bottom 6 than an incompetent top 6.
