After seeing these players and what they are asking for, I see they still don't get it.
I'd rather come in dead last, get a good shot at Cosby and give a bunch of kids a 100% shot to show if they can become pro's.
I would expect if there is a season that Dawes, Hollweg, Wiseman,Moore, Kondratiev and Giroux all have chances to make the team if we don't sign any FA's. Even if they have no AHL experience
Looking at the absurd contract requests of these players I'm starting to think trade is a better route and I'm sure other GM's are also. Perhaps Lundmark, Poti and Rachunek can be used along with one of our goalies to acquire young, proven, rising NHL talents instead of waiting for old guys to stop asking for 4 years, 20 million
