<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Roysboy72</b></div><div>I understand, I just think the financial issues could be worked out in better ways than letting Rust go. Malkin and Letang are likely getting paid less next year, Carter may be retiring, and the only other player I can see getting a significant pay raise is Kapanen (maybe). It would probably be better to try and move one of the Matheson, Pettersson, or Zucker contracts if things get tough.</div></div>
Yeah, I agree for the most part. I hope the Pens find a way to keep Rust. Word is Malkin will take a discount, but Letang will look to get his market value, so there will be some interesting decisions moving forward for the Pens. Kapanen can probably also get like $5M. Hextall likes Matheson, so I don't see him going anywhere, but I'm sure they will try to move Pettersson again, as well as Zucker depending if he rebounds or not.

Ottawa isn't using an offer sheet on any RFA, they are too fiscally inhibited to make an attractive offer the present team wouldn't match.
Vegas can match up to $4.7MM and have until February to figure out their cap, including just trading Tuch away for picks/prospects. They aren't giving up Patrick (Glass) for a 2nd.
Ottawa has no need for a plug like Aston-Reese when they have Watson, and if they acquired a centre, they can move White to RW.
Pettersson might be an adequate 2nd pair LD, but once the college season ends, that spot will get filled by Sanderson, and Pettersson isn't likely to beat out Chabot or Sanderson and would be three more seasons of a financial drain past this season, a season the Sens aren't seriously contending in anyway. It's a waste of an acquisition for four years. It's extremely short sighted, something a teenager would think makes sense.
And here I am not being nice again.</div></div>
ZAR is a plug? He was one of the best defensive forwards in the LEAGUE the last two years. If that's what a plug does then man, you have an odd bar.
Take a gander.
