The Cap is expected to drop to 50 million in 2010. Sykora, as bad as he's been, won't take a paycut. Cammalleri is unrealistic at 4.5 And Scuderi at .9 is a complete pipe dream, ney, an insult to our intelligence.
I've upped Scuderi to 1M. If that's still way off, they could put Lovejoy in the bottom pairing and move Eaton up to the top pairing.

I'm hoping Cammalleri (who is making 3.35 this year) will sign a longer term deal with a lower cap hit than he could potentially make with a one or two year deal.

I mean everyone can't be up for massive raises. Especially if the cap goes down. The players (employees) salaries will be affected by the economic situation along with the cap. Their salaries don't exist in a bubble and they will not be paid as much as they would be if the economy was booming. At least, that's my opinion.
