Let's be realistic here. You have nothing to worry about as far as any of those players signing here next offseason the way this team is presently assembled

Every decent UFA gets overpaid. The Isles will have to overpay even more to get anyone.

I wouldn’t be so sure. Not every star player wants to play for his hometown team. Offer them the coin, and they will come. It’s not like New York is Winnipeg or Edmonton either. You guys are still close to first class amenities.

We've been here before nobody, and I mean none of the players you mentioned are coming here willingly.

I didnt mind Komarov all that much just thought his contract was terrible but after this;

Igor Eronko

@IgorEronko
Leo Komarov: I’m sure the Maple Leafs are able to win the Stanley Cup with Tavares without any problems #TMLtalk

Not so sure anymore...

Unless the Isles have a better than expected season and a shovel is in the ground at Belmont and maybe even then the Isles will not be a prime target for FA's.

They also don't have a home arena, they just lost their franchise player, it looks like they will have a 1st line, a 3rd line and two 4ths, they have the highest tax rates in the US. No one is coming to the Isles without getting substantially overpaid.

We have for many years. I wasn't advocating for overpaying a player to get them here. I don't think they will be able to attract top talent until Belmont is built. Even then they will need a competitive team.
