Presuming we deal Miller and Vanek, we have to sign some veterans just to get to the cap floor, so get over it.

Trust me, a bottom 3 finish is my #1 goal for next year, but I still think the right veteran can be really invaluable to the rebuild. These guys are top prospects because they learned how to play the junior game extremely well. That test is over now. The NHL is a different animal. Coaches can do a lot, but having an older player who is smart, confident and technically sound to observe can be invaluable. I want to say especially because our head coach is an NHL rookie, too.
