If a team has bad contracts that is obviously less than optimal but having too many good players on fair contracts means some have to be traded for futures which is just part of the natural cycle of a team and not a hurtful ‘problem’ perhaps... Not good problems! We are one of the worst teams in the league right now. We don't have too many good players on fair contracts. We will have fewer players on good contracts going forward because we will be paying or overpaying our kids as their contracts expire. We have a core of good young kids who have a chance to become a great core for the next five years or so. We have a big blank of nothing coming to support or add to them in the pipeline for most of those years. Not all of our existing guys are going to have career years and linearly progress every season just because they are a year older. Try to map out a plan for becoming a Cup contender in the next five years without adding a lot more top end players. Our drafting can furnish us with middle and bottom end players to replace existing veteran contracts and make up for expensive UFAs. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
