Only 1 more season on that deal, though. And I doubt the 6.8 million cap hit stunts any significant plans. The top available UFA for the Wings, yet again, would probably be Semin.
And I say this as somebody who has been against JBo from the start, but salary isn't a huge factor I'd wager. My primary concern would be that whatever prospect we give up would go on to a fruitful career while JBo continues to be an underwhelming top pairing defender.
At least if we go broke on Gaborik I know the dude is going to be an amazing sniper.
