As someone said above, we could fill the team with Strakas for 1 year and come out on top. If Sather trades just one or two, and still comes out with $10M+ under the cap next year, and is able to sign a player like Lecavalier, this is still great asset management.
You have to sign a few legit guys whats to say all these big UFAs you guys keep talking about will be out there. We kept hearing how the Rangers were goig to get Iginla next year hes signed for 3 yrs. Now you're looing at Lecavlier what makes you think hes gonna be available. Likewise all the other big players you think MIGHT be around. You can't loading up with guys like Straka for 1 yr. 1st of all you'll stink 2nd of all if you're consistenly bad why do you think ay of these big UFAS will come to the Rangers. Aucoin and Scathard both went to other teams for the same money. With all other teams now on a level playing field money wise you just can't throw the cash around like years prior.
