People always go nuts on UFA day... but I think if we can avoid going crazy for the high-end guys, there could be some value in the secondary market. The big worry in my mind is that Benning gives a secondary guy top-tier money.
The secondary market is just as bad as the high end market when it comes to UFA season. It’s bad across the board. Why are we talking about this like it’s some kind of recent revelation. It’s been called crazy money season for years for a reason. If you want your GM to play and pay in July stop fucking moaning about it after the fact. You want players to sign with your team it will take generosity to get them to sign. Is this news or something?
Think Vrbata vs. Eriksson. They're not the same.

I wonder if one of the big fish would do a 2 year $20 Million contract?

I’d be fine if Elmer did nothing if he strikes out on Karlsson
Yeah if we are going to overspend on a UFA, might as well be someone who is elite and can score 60+ points on defense.

EK would really help the transition game for Petey/Horvat and Boeser.

Plus take some pressure off Hughes.
