We'll have to see. I am pretty sceptical. A couple top 4 guys may end up being added to the pool but beyond that I'd be surprised.

When I look at the guys scheduled for UFA next summer, I'd very generously estimate there are between 7 and 10 guys capable of still playing 22+ minutes a night at the NHL level. Some of those guys will be resigned before the summer and many more are close to retirement and/or would seem to have little interest in the Jets (ex. Gonchar).

The truth is the pool will be so thin that if Hainsey makes it to UFA he'll probably one of the top 5 defencemen available.
