I don't think you can tie up 15 mil + a year in half of your defense. That's without retaining Stralman who was better than both Staal and Girardi most of the postseason. Depth wins chamionships. Locking up the top4 D and sacrificing some of the best bottom 6 depth the team has had in years is a big risk. Pouliot - Brass - Zucc was the most consistent line all year. You're okay with letting 2/3s of that walk without a plan? Moore and Boyle were crucial in the dot for key faceoffs and penalty killing. Boyle wants to leave, you would let Moore go too?

For someone who was talking about deficiencies and problems with this roster you sure are willing to create a bunch more.
