Aside from Suter and Schultz, there was nobody notable. And I'm not impressed with Suter without Weber.

This team isn't much of a contender with Suter than without. The UFA pool has been pretty dry and the ones who do make it through get severely overpaid to the point it where your RFA/UFA who expect raises will have HUGE bargaining chips.

Holland, "B.Smith we will pay you $2 million per yr for 3 years"

Smith, "Nope! You just paid Ehroff $10 million last year and you are paying him $8 million this year, I want atleast that!"

If Smith lives up to his potential he will likely get award over $3+ million per year. If Holland doesn't overpay like an idiot, he can probably get him for around $2 million.

Lol, then there are people crying that Holland didn't re-sign Hudler... Yet Hudler was the official whipping boy on the team. Had Holland re-signed Huder, people would still be crying because Holland is "redundant" - Brunner would be in the AHL this year.
