Chelios was offered a 1 yr contract.
Hull and Thomas will not be back
They are happy with Cujo and Legace in net
He mentioned they'll likely look for a scorer in free agency
Question: how much would they have to spend on a scorer if the payroll is to be at 65 million and shanahan schneider chelios re-sign ?
Per Redwingscentral.com, the wings have $45.8m committed to next year already. Their RFAs made $5m last year.
RFAs: $6.25m (assuming a 25% increase)
Answer: They don't have any money left over for a scorer. Unless Chelios and Yzerman sign for less or Schneider doesn't come back.
