I'm not falling in love with anyone.

And this statement is only true if that bottom 6 player wants a bigger contract than his actual worth to the team (ie., Bouma).

Yes, I completely agree with the sentiment that no bottom 6 player is a core piece, and that they are replaceable.

But there's a difference between letting Brandon Bollig go to free agency and not Marcus Kruger. That's all I'm saying.

So far the Flames have not done well in this regard. Jooris will likely be cheaper to re-sign than he was last off-season. Not falling in love with these types of players is not the same as throwing them away when it's time to negotiate a contract.
