Doesn't change that he is/should be in play also.
I think of the 3, Cooke and Dupuis hold very similar value for me. I think with TK, he becomes redundant because if we can fill out a top 6, ideally, Dupuis and Cooke will be 3rd liners, because you'd then have a pure shutdown line that has some scoring ability. So you then have a guy making over 2 million on the 4th line.
I also think that Kennedy's RFA status could work in our benefit as that adds more value to him as he's cost controlled.
Say we straight up trade him for a guy like Stewart (which I have no idea if it'd be enough, as I'm not sure if STL really needs anything on their team)...
I think it's well balanced, and each line fills the role that DB likes it to fill. People will probably not believe Bennett will be ready next season, but I definitely think he'll stick next season.
