plug in reasonable numbers for Petro, Stewie and Allen and the payroll is around $62m -$63 M.
search for offense more likely to be through a deal than a signing.
Consider this: Why have we signed others and not Stewart and Pie, both of whom have done more and been more important to us than anyone else signed so far saved Shattenkirk? Anyone here with brain one, and that's all of us, would have signed Pie first. Did we?
Why not? Well....
I have a bad feeling we'll make our move by moving them. Allen isn't going to cost us much and Halak is an injury case. No one is going to pay for him or give more than what we just signed in a trade. Set his numbers aside for a moment and consider: Would YOU take a chance on a injury case?
Exactly. So what do we have left of value to give for what we need?
Stewart and Pie. Those two plus maybe Perron or mayyyybe Halak and suddenly you got an Elite coming back to the Note.
