Higgins (3.7M)- Maxwell (850 K)- S. Kost (800 K)
Max Pac (875 K)- Lapierre (687 K )- Laraque (1.5M)
Chipchura (800 K)

Markov (5.75 M) - Komisarek (4.5M)
Hamrlik (5.5 M) - O'Byrne (941 K)
Gorges (1.1 M) - Weber (875 K)
Valentenko (850 K)

Price (2.2M)
Halak (775 K)

Total: $56.5 million

So it's possible but pretty tight, if the cap doesn't go up next year.
Looks relatively in check with what I expect...

Reading an RDS article today and I couldn't help but laugh...

Kovalev's reputation as an ego-maniac continues to grow... Maybe Gainey should have another talk with the guy.
Did I say to sign him now?

I have Kovy in my avatar so I must be one of his groupies? That it? Obviously we need to see what he does this season.
