It's 2013. Summer is here. Look at the draft picks, UFA day opens and do the Isles EVER look like they're trying to win the Stanley Cup?
No, they're showing off their draft picks saying, "one day we won't suck so bad."
It's awe inspiring. Where do I sign....
IF Wang actually plans on increasing payroll, we should be able to add quality players even if we get shut out by top UFAs. The trade market is always a good source for bringing in talent, and in an offseason where a lot of teams will be forced to trim payroll fat(some of which will probably be valuable fat), Wang/Snow should have even more options.
We have a lot of talent in our pipeline. We even have a handful of elite talent. Add in another high draft pick(which, as much as it pains me to say it, is probably likely) and there really should be no excuses for not bringing in veterans that can truly help this team.
Even if absolutey zero UFAs are interested in signing here, you'd have to think that Brock Nelson, Matt Donovan and the 5th overall pick in the draft would bring back a pretty good player. Not only is that a very good prospect, a good prospect and a potentially great prospect going away, but they bring virtually zero cap hits. Not to mention 2 out of 3(arguably 3 out of 3 depending on who is drafted) will be NHL ready.
Regardless of whether or not you or anyone would want to trade that kind of package, the point is that this team could bring in proven NHL talent if they really want to.
