He can with Krajicek and Edler. Not sure about how it works with Bernier.
What I meant was Gillis probably wanted Bernier signed on a longer term deal. Instead he has to deal with him next year and, assuming he has factored in Sundin signing, shoehorning that increased (again assuming) dollar amount into the budget for next season. On top of that Ohlund, Daniel, Henrik, Burrows, Pettinger, and Pyatt need or may be resigned. Some of those guys will get raises. Messes with next seasons salary structure.
