Think about the future...

OK, some of you will say that I'm too positive, but I think that Gainey is doing a good job by not giving too large contract to a guy like Elias...

Why?

Simply because Gainey is probably think futher then the next season. We have a young team and guys like Higgins, Komi, Perez, Pleks and Kost will not cost you much, but only for their first two contract...

They will be soon looking for a big raise and we have to have the cap to be able to retain their service...Ryder seems to be a consistent 30 goal scorer...will he only wants 1M per year for the rest of his career?

Markov will be a UFA next year...he will not be looking for 2M.

Also, Gainey surely don't want to fill the roster with vets because he knows that we have many young players in the system who will be ready within 2 years.
