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


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.

MacDonald is a lot younger than Streit, and a lot better than Komi, and more well rounded than Liles. There is no reason to believe that he show the same kind of falloff.

And, I don't think locking up a guy in his mid-to-late twenties for 4 or fie years would be so fool hardy.
