Kovalchuk my guess is a little higher than Heatley 3.25 million
Kipprusoff 3-4 million
Lecavilier 3.5-4.5 million (due to playoff success)
Richards same as Lecavilier
Belfour???? 6-7 million only because Toronto doesn't really have a choice so he lots of bargaining leverage and he saved there a** in the playoffs

Also what would players get if they had to sign a new deal???


Jagr : now making 10-11 million if had to sign new deal under CBA 6-7million

Guerin: now making 8 million, if had to sign now i'd say 3.5-4 million

Lindros: now not sure, if had to sign new deal 2-3 million

Cujo: now 8 million, under new deal 5 million

Anythoughts anyone??? Am I way off on these numbers???
Heatley and Kovalchuk do not have arbitration rights, they only need to be qualified at their current prices. Combined they will cost Atlanta under 3 mil. That is undoubtedly the best bargain in the NHL(if only they had a team to go with those two).
