Kovalev - 2 year, 4.75M
Lang - 1 year, 4.25M
Higgins - 1 year, 1.75M offer sheet
Plekanec - 1 year, 1.75M offer sheet
Chipchura - 1 year, 1M offer sheet
Kostopolous - 2 year, 1.25M
Latendresse - 1 year, 1.5M offer sheet
D'Agostini - 1 year, 1M offer sheet
Schneider - 1 year, 4.5M
Bouillon - no offer
Dandenault - no offer
Komisarek - 3 year, 4.75M
Brisebois - no offer
That brings us to 58.76M with our current salaries for next year. Then we start trying to trade, either for a good center, a solid d, or some draft picks. First up, the Kostitsyn bros. That drops about 4.06M. Then Plekachu goes for his 1.75M if he decides to take it to bring our space up to about 5.8M. Finally, I'd also consider trade options for Laraque which would also give us another 1.5M.
The only players I really want back are in bold. I like Kovalev, but he's too unpredictable and goes into slumps too often. The Kostitsyn Bros. have no work ethics. Sure they got talent, but they have to go.. Package them in a deal.. Ok throw in Koivu if he's willing to sign for less... He want's to win but cannot do it on his own..
