Greg Pateryn/Brad Hunt
Greg Pateryn and Brad Hunt could both be feasible departures in the offseason. They are still under contract for the 2020-2021 season, but with the emergence of Carson Soucy, the defensive group has become crowded.
The bottom pair does allow for an opportunity to create cap space and a roster spot with the soon-to-be expiring contracts. Greg Pateryn’s cap hit will be $2.25M next season whereas Brad Hunt’s cap hit will be a simple $700k.
I personally like Brad Hunt and Carson Soucy as a pairing more than Hunt and Pateryn or Soucy/Pateryn, so I would look to move Pateryn, but either could be an option. Moving either of the bottom pairing dmen would allow for Belpedio or Menell to get a promotion to the Pro Roster and open up a spot for our prospects in Iowa like Calen Addison or Fedor Gordeev.
