I am down with buying richards out, but youd deff have to address our scoring needs then.. Bring in Horton, even Jagr/Iginla on a short term deal and then 14' go big for Malkin, Stansy (if price is right) but I wouldn't mind looking into Pavs as our 2c..

Clowe-Pavs-Horton in 14' ( Im obv just speculating) but I think richards will be here next year for sure, whcih iam ok with, after that he has to be gone bc everyone is either an RFA/UFA in 14' and we need his money to pay them..

Its really going to be interesting how slats handle this.. 2-3yr deal Matt Duechane/logan coutier type deal 2.75- 3.5m or will his agent demand ROR $$$ (deff deserves) or will slats just lock him in at 4-4.5m long term on 4-6yr deal.. should be interesting to stay the least.. I rather sign him long term on 5-6yr deal lower cap buy UFA years.. so its easier to keep all our RFAs long term.. McD, DZ, and hags shouldnt be to bad..

if we didn't sign staal to the deal he would easily be getting over 4.5m-5m right now.. soo its wiser long term deal for certain RFAs..

but i see possibly slats first long term deal with stepan and obv Mcd will get staal type treatment which is good..
