They needed to save money for the summer of 2014 when Giroux, Couturier, Schenn, and Read will all get raises so they would have either left some space next year or filled it with a 1 year veteran. They kept the money within and kept a great leader in place. If he wants to come back in 2014 that's when it HAS to be at a discount. Next year we're fine. Without Kimmo our defense would be brutal next year. Any other FA would have been a downgrade and would have wanted multiple years which would gut into the space we need to save for the young core we need to extend.
