Keep in mind that MacInnis was on the Roll last year and will be coming off. Melandby will not be returning. Toss in players like Jeff Finnley, Khavonov, Laflamme, and you are looking at 10-12 million right there. That doesn't even talk about Osgood, Drake, and Demitra, which would add an additional 13 million off the top, putting the Payroll about 35 mil range, including Prongers 9.5 contract.
Best guess Blues resign Demitra to a 1 year deal, Pronger to a Multi - if possible.
Anything else is Toronto fan/media hype....
Looks like they can do it then according to your analysis. I was merely suggesting that just because The GM says he isn't trading a player doesn't mean that won't.
Anything else is your interpretation not my hype.
