The Rochester core will be in their first UFA contract but still in their prime and the kids will be coming into their own. The only problem is the D is looking weak but you addressed that above in regards to dealing from a position of strength.

Looking at the compensation for RFAs, as long as the AAV is less than $5 mil the compensation is only a 1st and a 3rd. Assuming they are not busts those picks will not help us until 5 years down the road.
In what world are we poised for a deep run this year?
