[QUOTE=dimi78;62231743]glad your not the GM... In a cap world having expiring contracts isn't a bad thing in letting these particular type of depth players walk at the years end while enjoying the depth they give you for the remainder of the year especially with playoffs in sight.
What are you going to get in return for Bozak and MacArthur that will improve or be part of your future anyway trading them for futures? 2nd - 3rd round picks that chances are wont turn into anything that will be part of the teams future or prospects that like you've eluded to is already with the Marlies. Doesn't sound like to me is worth the risk weakening the team when this team is in a playoff spot.
I have no problem what's of ever letting these 2 go for nothing at season end. You gain the cap space that will go to re-signing Kadri and clear 2 roster spots for that AHL depth to be promoted at the beginning of next year rather than throwing them into the fire of battling for a playoff spot that would be setting them up to fail.
i agree but next year we are not in cap hell.
We have buyouts that only cost money and that is one resource we have plenty of. That prospect we get for one of them or that couple of seconds could enable us to move up into the first round of a deep draft. Also the draft after the first 10 or so is always a crapshoot, so the more you draft the better chance you have of hitting a home run.
