ya but buffalo has 40 mill in cap and in the next 2 years the only big players they need to resign is thompson, cozens and samuelsson.
thompson if he can replicate a similar season to what he did this year will get about 6-7 mill
cozens will get like a 3-5 mill bridge deal
samuelsson probably 2-3 mill bridge deal.
they also get rid of girgensons, okposo and bjork's contracts which is over 9mill.
for the next 5 years the only guys they will potentially having make over 7 mill is thompson, Dahlin and skinner.
so i think it would be a very smart for them to offer up krebs for Lundell and bobrovsky no retention maybe florida adds a little more like another one of their top 4 prospects.
Bob gives them a stop gap goalie for one of their prospects to rise up, he also will help them compete more as that seems to be in the direction they want to head in no more tanking, also helps them reach the cap floor. Plus they get their franchise center in Lundell.
they would have a core of Lundell, Dahlin, Power, Samuelsson, Thompson, Quinn, Tuch, Peterka, Cozens, Rosen, 9OA and 16OA selections. like once they get over skinner and bobrovsky's contract it will be just in time to get all their extensions out most those guys still being on bridge deals and they will have a future dynasty team if all their top prospects and players turn out and at this moment all their guys are developing very nicely.

im really confused where you are getting your info from. this class is stacked.
most the guys in the top 15-20 range have 1st line+ potential. their is even some later 1st rd russian guys like Trikozov, Miroschnichenko, Yurov who are gonna be really good but will fall due to being from Russia.
the USNTDP was stacked this year. Cooley, Nazar,Gauthier, McGroarty, Howard, snuggerud, kaplan, hutson, casey, chesley all those guys are 1st rd caliber yet some will fall to the 2nd rd.
their is about 6+ potential franchise leading centers in this draft (wright, cooley, savoie, nazar, lambert,Lekkerimaki, gauthier, geekie) even some of the C's that are supposed to go later have high 2C potential like Kulich, Kasper, Mesar, Bystedt, McGroarty.
I'd say only the top 5-8 guys are really kind of safe to go where they should be but after that i think a lot of guys could jump because their is so many high potential prospects.
everything i have read so far is that their is about 8 guys that have a claim at 2OA and that it all comes down to team playstyle and positional need. like both Lekkerimaki and Kemell are getting comparisons to stutzle who went 3OA yet these 2 guys most likely go from 7-12OA
