It will be tight...being able to bury Laraque contract in Sweden (save 500k) would be nice. Maybe the NHL cap will go up a bit too?? Might be lowballing Plek a bit at 4.75m, but we dunno what he's looking for, maybe he'd take that at 1-2 years to establish a better stat sheet for a big contract. Price could get more than 3.5m too but it's hard to gauge what he's looking for, 3.5m for 1-2 years sounds ok.

Anyways the point is..summer 2010 is not a HUGE problem unless either Price or Plekanec is looking for BIG MONEY right now. We will have to start with a barebones roster though unless there is a break on a cap rise or somehow moving Laraque off cap (avoiding buyout).

2011 there's a bit more flexibility.. Hamrlik could get a lower contract if they re-sign him, maybe Markov is a candidate for one of those 11 year cap friendly ones, could lower his cap hit.
