IF we could sign them they would be signed by now. Nonis knows exactly what the terms are for signing each of these players. Thats why we have a whole year when we can resign them and others cant talk to them. I guarantee Nonis has talked to their agents and knows whether we can afford them going forward.
Again does anyone on here think we have a legitimate chance to win the cup this year. Anyone in their right minds knows we have no chance. Even if we keep bozak and mac and add a couple of players we are still not deep enough to go all the way.
If thats the case is it in our best interest to trade our UFA's or lose them for nothing. Just looking at what Penguins gave up BoZak is worth at least a first and propect to someone in need of a second line center and macarthur is worth at least a second and a prospect.
Then at draft time send these prospects and picks with ours to try to get down to get our #1 center Barkov/Monahan etc
As a team that cant win the cup this year we have to be smart and use our assets wisely. If that means not making the playoffs then so be it. For some fans that say if we dont make the playoffs then i'm not a fan anymore. If that the case you Are not a fan anyway.
Ask yourself this question
Would it be worth it this year to miss the playoffs if we could get the #1 center we covet so much at the draft?
