Ya I would agree. I think the goal should be to lock up hall for a bit and try to get Tuukka and Krejci on short years/money for one more kick at it. Charlie is getting a $3-$4 mil raise next offseason and Pasta the year after and they have zero cheap depth. 2 years in a long time for development and they will have some chances to make up some ground but I'm worried they have all this cap space in the wrong offseason. $22 mil in space next season would be amazing. Alas.They aren't throwing up the white flag yet.
I think the lynch pin here is Krejci. They have no alternative/replacement if he decides to move on. That decision also ties into their plans for Hall.
