Well, there’s that. No way to get him before the season starts now. Always questioned whether Danny would want him at that price anyways.
So what’s next? Not sure there’s currently a trade option for any TPE we get, so we may be looking at pretty much our final roster.
We've got one open spot, and the BAE, so I could see us adding some wing depth. Nothing groundbreaking, though.
I'm also pretty intrigued by the idea of getting the Hayward TPE and then using part of it to bring in TT in a S&T. That would leave us the full MLE, and while I don't think we would use it now, it could be huge in buyout season.
The past few years, we've really only had the minimum to offer a buyout player, but if we had the full MLE we could outbid basically any other contender (if we wanted to). It would reduce the TPE to more like $20 million, but I don't see us adding a $20-30 million player at the deadline/next summer either way.
