I'm busting the cap, I know, but Gainey will have the entire summer to shave off that 1 million. And Sergei, Lapierre and Pouliot would have to accept 1-2 years contracts with marginal raises to make it there too. Obviously we'd have to get rid of Spacek, Hamrlik or Gill, but that won't be easy.

This is the list of the defensemen going UFA this summer : Lidstrom, Niedermayer, Gonchar, Kubina, Johnsson, Martin, Blake, Clark, Mitchell, Rathje, Zidlicky, Morris, Salei, Foote, Sutton, Van Ryn, Lydman, Jones, Schneider, Corvo, Smith, Tallinder, Pothier, Volchenko, Ward, Aucoin, Seidenberg, Eaton, Hamhuis, Morrisonn, Leopold, Wallin, Mara, Boyton, Krajicek, Ference, Exelby, Jurcina, Colaiacovo, Lilja, Michalek, O'Donnell, Frogren, Sydor, Paetsch, McKee, Weaver, Mottau, Bergeron, Bouillon and then about 15 borderline NHLers.

So, you get the idea. It's impossible to say at the moment if and how we can trade aging vets on the blueline. I'd love see Spacek moved but it's hard to guess what's going to happen.
