In 3 years, we have Jake, L.Schenn, Coburn, Grossman, Talbot as all UFA...assuming they are still here. Realistically, I see 2 year deals. And in those 2 years is when we need to push for a cup win IMO. That is when we hopefully have those 2 GREATLY outplaying their cap hits.
We still need to find a young PMD with 1st line upside...target Bogo!
I think it really depends on how they perform next season. If they really break out it could get expensive, they might not take a discount like G did.
