Briere 6.5
Richards 5.75
Gagne 5.25
Carter 5
Hartnell 4.2
Kimmo 6.33
Coburn 5
J-Bouw 6.75

That's 44.78 million.

You're basically looking at sacrificing everyone else on the roster and there's not even a goalie on that team.

Heck, if the cap eventually does drop to 53-54 mill, that's less than 10 million to sign a goalie, 3 defensemen, and 7 forwards.

You're basically giving us a 2 year window before we have to trade everybody and a lot of the guys on that list have NTCs.
you are a buzz killington
