Basically players in the doghouse who aren't responding, which is why I didn't include Boyle and why I'm reluctant to name Dubinsky.

I think Sather has his feelers out there testing potential returns. But I don't see anything happening just yet. I think the staff wants to see who reponds to adversity and who quits on the team.
At this point I think you have to add Higgins to that list--the reason being he's a pending UFA and his production doesn't merit what he's getting now let along what he might get as an UFA. From what I've seen so far he's not a guy that I'd make much of an effort to re-sign.
