I can't believe how few players the Isles have under contract for next season. It looks like the Sabres's roster going into the summer of 2006.
The Isles have 10 UFAs and 8 RFAs next summer. Bailey being one of the RFAs
He's got a chance to be pretty good. I'm thinking his ceiling is 2nd line center. Not like he's got any linemates to work with on the island. I think it'd be a cool experiment. However we'd probably have to switch some stuff around...
Darcy will have to do some work to keep this team intact and competitive..this offseason will remind me of a untalented 07 offseason.
We're not in the same boat. Btw I was primarily focusing on their current NHL roster not their entire organization.
If you're going to compare the relatice roster building situations the two teams face. Who they have under contract for next year matters when looking at these things. Having 11 players signed for next season, many of them core level players, puts us in a good jumping off point to build next years team.
