Dandenault, Lang, Bouillon, Bégin, Kostopoulos and Brisebois will probably all be gone next year, that's ¸roughfully 10.5 mil, it's not alot with the number of players with raise coming, personnally i would much rather give (next year) Guillaume Latendresse a top 6 job permanently, put Maxwell and Pacioretty on the 3rd line and go get a D ala Jay Bouwneester, i think we can pull off that team in a cap world, what do you guys think?
Higgins is going nowhere..
Kovy and Lang are possibly gone after this year, it will clear enough space on the cap..
Higgins should be signed around 3 millions, I doubt he gets more than Andrei..
