    I think it's safe to say that we'll drop most of the UFAs, and possibly trade some of the RFAs. I don't think this team is ready to worry about being up against the 50-contract-limit.
    LGR!

    First post. Long-time member of NYR Cafe, but server is down, so tried this forum out.

    I really like both of these signings. In general, this team is in dire need of both right-handed shooters and RWers. Buchnevich is likely a long-term piece, Fast is a great bottom-six guy, but Zuccarello is likely gone by the end of next season and in the pipeline, there's no right-handed talent besides Ty Ronning, who while promising, is by no means a sure-fire prospect.

    Both Meskanen and Lindqvist might become nothing more than AHL fodder, but I love no-risk moves like these. Hoping one of these guys end up a long-term piece!
