I like the idea, send it in to the league and the players. the worst they can do is throw it away.

Here's how Detroit payroll would break down this season, using the roster and salaries at http://www.allsports.com/nhl/redwing.../orgchart.html

I added in Chelios at $2.5, Datsyuk at $3.5, Schnieder ar $4, and Yzerman at $4.

Their payroll comes out to roughly $66 million. Of that, $29 million is committed to players not drafted, or having less than 8 years of service for them. That puts them in the middle of the pack. There's still a pretty good chance they won't sign Schneider (and if they do, it will be for less than $4 million), and if the lockout goes on for the full year, Chelios won't be back. So that takes the total down to $22 million, putting them in the bottom third of last year's league totals.
