now its up to Nonis to rectify this mess
lombardi and cash for a pick was a good start
unfortunately nobody wanted connolly when he got waived
Those two arent a huge problem. Connolly is a UFA this summer, and Komi can be bought out this summer.
Liles and Grabo though are both locked up for 3+ years. Grabo is definitely overpaid IMO, Liles probably isn't (assuming he can rebound to be a ~40-45 point Dman over an 82 game season) but Gardiner/Rielly and others are going to be pushing him out sooner rather than later.
Lupuls contract might also be bad. Hard to say yet if last year was a fluke, since he's been injured all of this season so far. Considering the risk involved in fluke vs non-fluke, I think he definitely got more than he deserved. He should have gotten something like a two-year 9-10M$ deal... not a 5 year 5.25 cap-hit deal. If last season was a fluke, then he is severely overpaid, and overpaid for a long time.
