Team: 2019-20 Columbus Blue Jackets
Team Explanation
An attempt to see if it's possible to retain the Big Three UFAs. (All four is unlikely unless we get some significant "hometown discounts".) Whether or not it's *wise* to do so is left as an exercise for the reader.

    You can afford it. Do the want to stay though? That's the real issue.

    Panarin is gone. His GF wants big city. Columbus aint exactly that. I think Bob wants to walk but if blue jackets make the mistake of offering a goalie almost 10 mill, he may just stay

    Whether or not they want to stay wasn't the point of the exercise. I frankly gave up on prognosticating that months ago. smile I think we'll be able to manage on-ice either way; it was the cap hit involved in retaining them that I was toying with.
