Dawson daylight above cunningham and oriordan (who i like but don't think is good enough) imo in turns of prioritySerious test for our list managers ,because if we are going to develop this team,priority needs to be given to re-signing Dawson,Cunningham,Oriordan and Jones ASAP ! It would be disappointing if we lose these young cygnets ,especially when flogs like Brereton insinuate we will struggle to keep them because of salary cap constraints.
You could be right to some degree, however we are certainly looking like shedding some space well above what Buddy’s increase will be (around $100k next year). Salary cap goes up again too. Then you have Grundy retired, Jack likely to follow, McVeigh potentially likely and maybe Smith, particularly if his body doesn’t respond to treatment). Plus Tippett comes off the books and we don’t have Hanneberys salary anymore.I don't actually think we have as much as we would like with the Buddy $1.5M sucking the life out of our list.
He is not our best or most vital player, but for me he plays a crucial utility role for the team. There is no doubt he would be leading the Club's official most improved player count. Unofficially he leads the Club's "player most underestimated by Longmire and the Match Committee".I’d also add that a 5 year deal isn’t that unusual these days but if he continues his trajectory we will need to lock him in soon.
