Which tells you what kind of offense we have. Where is the money that was set aside for Suter? So Poile has to ask himself are we serious about winning a cup or just maintaining existance.
Hopefully the new constraints on contract terms will open up the free agent market more going forward.

I would say that Erat is a good second liner, and can be a good first liner as he has shown. It would be ideal to have Fisher and Legwand as our 2C/3C. SK... I don't know. Sometimes he plays like a top six winger. Sometimes he doesn't play at all.
