Eh? The 50 contract limit has nothing to do with anything. Whether you pick a skilled guy bpa or a 3rd line grinder youa re going to have to deal with the conttact limit at some point in time.
the problem the 50 contract gives us is that we cannot have too many of one skill. We have a lot of dmen coming up in the next couple of years. The 50 contracts includes 23 with the big club, a few goalies, and the forwards. We might only have 10 spots available for long term defence prospects.
Tuebert, Plante, Musil, Marincin, Gernat, Klefbom, Simpson, Davidson, Fedun all have a legit shot 2-3 years from now. It could take a special player to be a significant upgrade to that group. The special defence prospects have been picked already.
