Nothing of value lost in Lernout. So add Audette and Shinkaruk to the list. These guys didn't do much last year to stay around. Audette did show progress though. I don't know why the Habs traded Rychel for the bust Shinkaruk and still don't understand. Having Rychel in Laval would have really helped. Interesting to see what they do with McCarron, Reilly and Hudon, they will be qualifying them all. We already know Hudon is likely traded after refusing his QO. You don't necessarily want to keep a player around that wants out. All these guys have low value anyways, so don't expect anything of substance in return. There's also Alzner, Peca and Weise which take up around 8 mil in cap space. Awful contracts that I am sure MB is desperately trying to move but won't find any takers. Most of this mess is his wrongdoing when he gambled 2 years ago. Its expected because so many teams are cap restricted and have so many RFAs to sign. I do expect another Armia type deal which may unload these contracts to another team with another terrible contract in return but possibly a good asset as well. On the UFA side, I expect a quiet day. MB probably gets a backup goalie and signs fringe NHLers for Laval. Maybe they manage to nab some LD like Chariot and possibly add another winger like Nyquist. The top 4 LD comes through trade but is MB willing to pay for it?
