Consider this: if there is a salary cap....excuse me, I meant "cost certainty" :p , then there will almost certainly be a salary floor as well. Likely in the $30+ Million range. The Preds are going to have to spend some money on free agents. So, I'm thinking that while it's certainly possible that we'll see Upshall and Segal next year, I think there are a lot of other names besides Rem and A.J. that will be gone. Arkhipov anyone? And if he doesn't improve, another underperforming center as well.

I would imagine the 'salary floor' wouldn't be an immediate thing. I think it would be at the very least a gradual process.
