It's pretty hard to have two player making 7+ million (Gomez and Lecavalier), and three making 5+ million (Markov, Gionta, Cammalleri).

Personally, although he's not as good, I'd rather have St. Louis. More manageable term on his contract.

They need really big seasons in order to cash in,Price can make a little more but right now I don't see how Sergei can make more then 1.5 million next year unless he gets 50 + point but I understand what you are trying to say and agree that we cannot have half of our cap spent on 5 players
