My question as well. Don't forget Shack, Coutlangus, Claussen and Pelland.
It could mean hoarding LH to play the match-up game, but if that's the case the best guy for the role is Shack and he won't make the team now.
It could mean Cormier is trade bait. I hope so. As much as I don't really like him, I think he could bring something in this market (maybe as part of a package).
It could mean that Bray is going to be the closer and they are backfilling his role in the middle innings.
I think its very curious. He's not really an upgrade anymore over anyone they already have.
