Team Explanation
Baertschi either sits at home or plays in Utica (still sad about this, cause I think he deserves another shot in the NHL, but on that contract, nope!)
The team isnt perfect...consider it a growing year that can be a push for the playoffs. Even with all this, a trade may still need to happen.

Eriksson...AHL? maybe for cap room.
Ferland (would love him to play but LTIR)

Resign Leivo...1 year, simple...another tryout year for him.
Shotgun Jake...signs a small home-town deal 2.85 mil for 2 years and a big payday after that!

I think Benning is looking to sign another RD, but doesn't and shouldn't. Bring up Rafferty. That gives you Benn, Rafferty, Joulevi, and maybe Rathbone to make up the bottom pair.

The concern is if injuries happen, but not worth signing another ****ty contract...because Benning has a HORRIBLE record and is certain to mess things up. However, for the sake of making things being safer, sign Hainsey for a cheap 1 year.

An alternative Defense option is signing Tryamkin, but I understand he wants a little too much money and big role (maybe BFG has a BF-Ego).

With the forwards...the first to come up is Kole Lind and Hoglander (if he doesn't stay in Europe)

A lot of people think that we look weaker in our forwards than last year, but Tofoli only played 10 games for us. It was practically that lineup that made it through to the playoffs. They are now one year strong, more experienced and more cohesive.
