Considering the 2 players being proposed, yes. They will cost a bundle. We are already at the point where we need to cut salary from the F group to help the blueline. If we bring in another $4M-$5M player, we are going to have to cut even more salary out of the blueline. This team is already going to have to cut its salary down this summer if we simply retain all our current players. If we are adding even more salary to the F group, we will have next to nothing on the back end. We already have 3 1st rounders, plus Gagner and Eberle up front. We don't need to add even more expensive players to that group.
