Buy him out.

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


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.
Richards will be bought out if he is a liability after 2013/2014. Pretty sure that is the only realistic solution if the problem persists. Bt there are a lot of games to be played until then.
We can always find a #3/4 C too - if necessary. UFA market always can supply this. Or trades.
We can bring in stop gaps to fill in the #4 D as well
Del Zotto is not a real puck mover either
Has good offensive upside, is inconsistent (young) but not a real great player. I think his defense has looked pretty good this year though, much better than before.
