If Hickey and Strait can show that they are capable of logging more minutes this year, I would be fine with trading away AMacs rights next June. He is the perfect example of a guy we can't over-commit to.

2014/15 Blueline
Big Griff - Hamonic
Hickey - Vis (or potential UFA)
Strait - Donovan

And...

DeHaan/Mayfield/Pedan/Pulock/Pokka/Pelech will be waiting in the wings

So, in 2015 all of these guys will be 1 or 2 years away from potentially cracking the line up as well. Now considering that, do we really need to lock up AMAC for 4/5 years? IF his play drops off like Liles/KOmi/Streit etc, we'll have another buyout on our hands.
