Only UFA options will be overpays (Souray), over the hill (Belanger and Bulin) or damaged good (Eager). Just traded captain and best veteran center for nothing, got nothing but more picks at the draft when they needed real NHL players, and alienated a decent starting goalie. Quite the week for the rookie GM whose motto seems to be "talk big and carry a twig".
