I hope so, too.

And with Richards' situation. 34 yrs old after the 13-14 season, with 6 years remaining at 6.6 per.

Buy him out.

At that point Miller will have had two years NHL experience. Lindberg will most likely be here.

O'Reilly
Stepan
Miller
Lindberg

Finally growing a young group of two way centers.

Nieves soon after.

And on defense, Skjei, McIlrath, Barrie added to McDonagh, Girardi, and Staal. Maybe Stralman sticks around?

Long-term, losing Del Zotto doesn't hurt us. This season maybe.

I like Del Zotto. But something has to give, given the financials long-term and depth in one area and lack of it in others.

It makes a lot of sense when you put the puzzle pieces together.
