There isn't anyone that we would really put on the block that would of interest to anyone....
Primeau (I doubt anyone requires his services)
Nilson (already cleared waivers)
Warrener (cleared waivers)
Erikkson (cleared waivers)
The youngs like Boyd, Prust, Nystrom are going to get chances to play this year.
Glencross and Bourque are new to the team and I doubt we'd let them go before seeing how they fit in with the team.
Lombardi will not be let go. Removing his salary to fit under the cap just doesn't make sense to us. We move Nilson, Warrener and Erikkson and that frees up 4 or so million dollars which will place us under the cap again. Unless of course, we were over even with those guys in A (I haven't checked for sure yet), but I'm pretty sure we're over because those guys are still in the bigs....
We have fairly good defensemen prospects so an injury to the top 6 will result in a cheap AHLer getting a shot at it.
