What should be discussed is NY's plan on shedding salary before next UFA period because we have way too much tied up in way too few players. We have 1 bona fide RW that can play on the top 2 lines and he's up for free agency this summer. We have an emerging star center that is up for free agency this summer. We have an excellent character player up for free agency this summer. We will have 2 defensive positions to fill this summer. We still need another right wing. Singing another high priced player not only fails to accomplish more than 1 of these objectives, it completly prohibits the team from effectively addressing those issues.
