Carter could get 5 million, umberger 3 millioon, thoresen gets 750,000 and jones could get 1 - 1.25 million. Some of these may be a little generous but they still work. After this we would still have enogh money to sign JML for about 3 million which would be more than double his salary from last year. After that you would still have money for giroux but if we didnt we could try to trade knuble. The lines could look like this.

Gagne Cannon Briere
Upshall Carter Giroux
Hartnell Umberger Lupul
Knuble/an ahl player Thoresen Downie

Cobern Timonen
Liles Parent
Kukkonen Jones
ahl player

This way we would have the same forwards as last year with a faster defense with liles and parent instead of hatcher and smith
alot of people here don't think RJ can play center in the NHL, but then pencil Thoreson as 4th center
