Mental math real quick, for the next three years, at least...

Kopitar - 6.8
Brown - 3.1
Sully - 2.9
Stoll - 3.6
Frolov - 2.9
Greene - 2.9
Zeus - 4
Preissing - 2.75
Moller, Doughty, Simmonds - 1 each

So that's a core with an approx. combined cap hit of roughly 34 million. Assuming Johnson gets overpaid with something like 5 per, that still puts us under the cap floor with 8 forwards and 4 defensemen locked up.

Not bad.
I'm worried DL is doing this at the wrong time. With the economy the way it is, I don't see the cap going up to 60-63 million as a previous poster suggested, I'm worried about it staying above 50 million. I think the contract is for too long in this case.
