Here's what I mean by it, resigning Filppula makes it so the Wings brass has to make some decisions financially with some players that they may have not made decisions like that if Filppula signed for less. It basically means that someone like Lilja is for sure going to be gone.

Hudler could be a good guy to move, along with Lilja to give us some Cap relief this year and for the Future. I am certain Hudler will be getting $2-2.5 million next summer, especially if Filppula is signing for $3 million. So we can either decide to go a route with signing Zetterberg, Franzen, Hudler, Kopecky and maybe Samuelsson and letting Hossa go, while having a good amount of space under the Cap to work. Or we could go with Zetterberg, Franzen, and Hossa say good bye to Hudler, Samuelsson and maybe Kopecky and being tighter around the Cap, but giving young guys like Emmerton, Leino, etc. call ups to fill the voids left.
