A player signed to 2019 that makes it worse IMO. Our goal in a Yandle deal is to free up cash to ensure we can extend OEL and Boedker. Unless we have an owner willing to increase payroll a deal for Nicklas Backstrom does nothing but make it worse to sign OEL and make this team more vulnerable to an offer sheet.
Subtract Sullivan,Lombardi,maybe trade Klesla or Morris in the offseason.Look, I know cash is tight, but there are ways to make it work. If our mindset is to get rid of Yandle to free up cash next year, we will not make the playoffs. What teams are paying for players now, Backstroms contract in my opinion would be a steal, just like Yandles is.
