I know the simple answer is scratch Carter or move Elias back to wing, but you figure Zajac at some point becomes a 1st or 2nd center again, Henrique is proving he also belongs there, Josefson was playing well enough with Kovy before he got hurt to stay there & Elias is having another solid year in the position.
Do we package one of them with a “D” man & maybe a prospect for 1st rounder & faster “D” man? Or we take a whole other approach? Another big question is how much money will Zajac want in 2 years when he becomes a UFA & can/could we afford him with the hopefulness of us resigning Parise?
With the emergence of Henrique & the continued improvement of Josefson we could probably sign each of them for at least 3-4 years at 3 Million each.
I closing I would hate to lose Zajac & if Lou can make it work with the cap then let’s keep him, but if we can’t let’s move him at the end of the year for a true future franchise goalie or an elite “D” man.
What’s your opinion?
