Vermette will get about 3 million or be traded. (rumor - Vermette for Carter in Philly.)
With the cap going up, dumping a combined 7 million in salary for our 2 goalies and dumping another 6.5 for Redden, Ottawa's cap spot is better than you think. To the point the Sens GM hinted he would go after Brian Campbell in the offseason who would be about 6 million per to get him. Weber offer sheet at 5 million per is quite possible if we don't get campbell.
Emery buyout is 2/3 of his 3 million.
Heatley + Spezza raises add another 5 milllion.
Mike Fisher raise = +3 million.
Vermette raise = +2 million. Trade him for Carter and it's going to be more. Mesaros raise, +2m.
No one will trade for Gerber right now.
Ottawa needs secondary scoring more than a 6 million d-man. Not mention, that 6 million dollar dman is going to cost you 4 first rounders.
