Have them up this season with the Wings so that they are better players next year, and you're saving cap space (team MVP) to use on high profile vets.
Except for most of the year, they've been playing top six minutes with top six linemates. Next year, they'll get at least agreeable linemates rather than random assortments of Bottom six players. The plan is to bring them in next year, and then the next, and then the next, and then the next as contracts for our current roster slowly come off the books. I'm sorry you're so impatient and want them to come on the team now. They'll be on the team. Just hold your horses for once in your lifetime.
