A decent one, but outside of Stastny and Burmistrov (who obviously isn't worth that), I don't know who would be available pre draft. You have any ideas? Even if it's just Cole? Can't imagine Cole's worth will be anything after tomorrow unless he's signed and traded in the offseason.

One thing that I will say is that I'm not AS worried about our financials as some. Stillman talked at length in several business oriented articles over the summer (all taken from the same source, I think) about capitalizing on the ebbs and flows of contention. He basically said that consistency doesn't win you fans in smaller markets as it's perceived as stagnation. I wouldn't be surprised if he was willing to ride the cap for 1.5 yrs on contracts with 1 & 2 yrs remaining in an effort to win something while this core can be together. Maybe I'm 'buying in' to Stillman too much. He is a shark when you get into the (released) details of his business, after all.
