Weiss has no trade value with an expiring contract and season-ending injury. So it actually makes more sense to try to resign him as he's a good player. And if we get MacKinnon it doesn't make sense to get rid of a center.

Defense could get better through subtraction as much as anything...need to rid ourselves of Jovo and Kuba. Then look for a solid if not splashy guy in free agency and/or move up one of the kids from San Antonio.

Not sure of their contract status, but for the same reason it makes sense to resign Weiss it would make sense to keep Flash and Versteeg. More offensive options the better. Defense sucks this year but could be the easiest thing to fix. The offense has sucked for ages and with incoming high-end blood all these second liners we use on the top line suddenly become a lot more valuable to us.
