I didn't load up and use my cap room completely (plenty of room to give raises to ELCs), have a few guys with long deals (notably Backstrom, Tavares, and Doughty), and I can probably use Ladd and Kennedy for an awesome checking line (though the first line would run roughshod, power versus power, against most other top lines). Up-and-comers at every position, too. Edit: also, what's a team without funny Tweets? I also wanted the underrated Butler to stabilize the lower pair and the underrated Purcell because that's the name of the author of the physics textbook I used last semester.
