You can bet on the numbers, or you can bet on Buck Showalter.

We don't need him, we just won the SC.  Our top 4 dman are locked up for multiple years.  We are also in decent cap shape right now which is good because next summer Burakovsky and Vrana will be up for raises/extensions.

Little TOOOO greedy on that one bud.

 

Like Duff said, they are in good shape on D. They'll sign a veteran depth Dman to be a scratch/share time with the young pups Bowey and co. and let them develop. Save their cap room for upcoming RFA signings.

 

They are going to be faced with a tricky situation with Ovi before you know it. Last couple years of his deal. Getting up there in miles. Do you come up with a new deal and keep him with the franchise his whole career? Do you let him walk and use that money to sign another upcoming young player hitting FA the first time (like Tavarez this year). Backstrom hits FA a year later I think, and then similar situation, is he still that elite player you pay those high rates for or do you re-allocate that money too? Gotta play the long game.
