We will have to wait and see what the Schneider contract looks like - but there is going to have to be some shuffling.

Ehrhoff - $3.1 million this season and next -then UFA. Sportsnet report:
Birthdate: July 6, 1982
Age: 27
Birthplace: Moers, West Germany
Height: 6'2
Weight: 205 lbs.
Shoots: Left
Salary: $2,750,000
NHL Seasons: 5
Drafted by San Jose in 2001 (4/106)

Owns sound hockey sense and the ability to log big minutes on the ice. Can quarterback a power play or be used in defensive situations.

Doesn't handle big NHL forwards too well, so he needs to start making better use of his 6-2, 200-pound frame.

Career potential
Top four defenseman.

Lukowich - $1,566,667 this season then UFA. His his recent injury report makes Salo look healthy by comparison. Sportsnet report:
Birthdate: August 12, 1976
Age: 33
Birthplace: Cranbrook, British Columbia
Height: 6'1
Weight: 200 lbs.
Shoots: Left
Salary: $1,650,000
NHL Seasons: 11
Drafted by New York in 1994 (4/90)
Acquired in a trade with Tampa Bay in 2008.

Plays a smart, conservative game and doesn't take unnecessary chances. Possesses a good shot from the point.

Doesn't play with enough toughness. Has struggled with various systems in recent years, as he's moved around a lot.

Career potential
Defensive defenseman.

You have the 10% cap overage for the off-season but it looks like some cap juggling will be needed for the regular season.

Maybe move Demitra?
