His actions: adding cheap kids, getting his own young nhlers to sign team friendly contracts and having a cap floor payroll, is a good indicator that he would not be in the mix to pay the oft injured Hermsky $5m
And what if the wing prospects bust or aren't ready? What is Snow going to do? More reclamation projects? I don't see Kabanov has a sure fire NHLer. Nelson could take a few seasons to develop too.
