I'd love it if we could keep Weiss under $5.5 million and sign Getz at no more than $7million a year.
The large contracts could work with all the young prospects coming up who aren't $3 million plus cap hits like Petrovic, Robak, Howden, Bjugstad and Markstrom. I'm tired of waiting for the next year to happen, Tallon needs a plan for the Weiss situation come April 3rd. A repeat of what Bouwmeester did to us would have me lose confidence in Tallon.
Plus, we have a lot of money wasted in Jovo, Kuba, and Upshall. That's 11 million that when it comes off the books could be put to better use.
