Plekanec isn't going to be signed under 4M$ a year. It's probably going to cost between 4-5M a season for 3-4 years for him.
And that's where Gomez's contract hurts a lot.
As from Price, he already had a pretty generous rookie contract (MAX IIRC). So I'd assume it'll be a bit like A.K. Around 3M$ for 2-3 years. He's a RFA so his bargaining power is limited unlike Plekanec.

I assume Lats is going to be let go (unless he magically becomes good again), freeing maybe 250K.
Not resigning Metropolit would be a mistake at that price. I'd rather sacrifice Mara or Gill and Dags. At 1M, he's an awesome utility player. I could even see Lapierre go this summer if it wasn't for the fact he's a center.
Btw, Laraque is definitely getting bought out this summer. His injury troubles + his salary are a real pain.
Maybe Spacek will be on the block to free some cap. Harmlik's salary is high but his intangibles are far too high to trade him.
