right...Some people have a difficult time accepting that keeping a player doesn't mean we're losing him for nothing in the offseason. Teams keep free agents to keep their team as competitive as possible if they're likely to make the post season. It'd be easier to trade Bouchard away because we have a kid that's stepped in that slot and done well, but it's still kind of tricky because playoff success >>> getting something for the future. Any owner would tell you that. $$ We could pay off both Suter and Parise's bonuses with deep playoff run.
