That assumes Pettersson is willing to do that. I know we haven't been given any indication he will hold out, but isn't it possible he doesn't want to take a 1 year deal under his market value? The MOST they can realistically offer him without burying JJ (not gonna happen) is $1,392,500 and that includes moving down Riikola and one of Trotman/Ruh. That puts pens RIGHT up to the cap, so likely something closer to $1MM flat. I'm not the greedy type, but I wouldn't sign that without some serious guarantees for the next contract.
