Now if you put either Purcell or Moller in the top 6 they will probably want a significant raise when their contract is up (Purcell next year or Moller in two years). Not to mention players like Quick, Doughty, Johnson and Bernier will probably be wanting decent raises in the next few years.
What makes you so sure of that? Personally, I think we can re-sign Marleau for 5.25-6 mil.
