Correct.....And Stoll's contract is rumored to be front loaded. So he would probably make at least $4 million this season. That would leave about $4.8 million for O'Sullivan, Richardson and another defenseman. Let's assume for a moment that O'Sullivan gets about $3.5 million and Richardson gets about $750,000. The would only leave about $550,000 for a veteran defenseman. That will not really get anyone of value. So somebody will have to be traded to make room for the 7th defenseman coming in.
