The old buyouts are done in 13-14 too.
Its doable for the $2.5 million difference between Stastny and resigning Boz, but you have to believe that Stastny can still bring that A game.
Clarkson and Weiss might be good bets for the leafs to go after as UFA's.
Just the fact that they add some nice compete/scoring pales in comparison to the fact that both are UFA's that both are Toronto boys that might love to come live close to home and play on a up and coming hometown team.
When something seems like such a likely fit it usually is lol. Everything just fits. Scoring and grit aside,these two will bring some extra veteran savvy that will come in handy.
All the components seem to be a fit with these two like the stars alligning or something
