1. Salary problems. This includes Briere, Lupul, Carle, and Jones. Because of those four re-signing Biron and Knuble could be a problem.
Lupul's a problem because he's completely vestigial. Maybe through some thorough scientific research we could prove we used to need him, but right now he's essentially a tailbone. It's not that he isn't talented, it's that he isn't a unique player in any which way. He doesn't do one thing for this team someone else doesn't. Not one. That's why he needs to go.
With that being said, his salary could prove to be slightly problematic (in terms of dealing him) but I really don't think so. There's plenty of teams on which he wouldn't be considered vestigial. I'm not looking for a large return on him, Carle, or Jones. Hell, trade them all for 7ths in 2012. I don't care. They just need to go.
