The backend is stocked, Johan and Cam will be a players, and you're looking at a bunch of potential for CBJ in this years draft.
I think you're looking at a bargain bin player...
Enter Clarke MacArthur.
He can play up and down the lineup, and will be willing to sign long-term (pending UFA). Back to back 20 goal seasons, and I think they'd be able to let him go cheaper as they have been able to replace him internally (Frattin).
What would MacArthur and ex. Buckeye Steckel fetch?
Why in the word we would look at more of the same? You did a nice job of spinning the conversation into the player you want to dump.
Personally I don't want to get into idle speculation of value of a player that there is not even a rumor about, however, I'm sure you find those more than willing to engage.
But I will say if there was a player that I was looking for, that is not it.
