How much are you willing to pay for cap space?

We don't need to dump drury to be a good team.
If redden was buried and rosival moved, that's 11.5 million in space right there. If that was used wisely we could easily build a cup contending team (big IF there).
Higgins is done after this year, 2.25 mil there, Kotalik can be dumped or buried, 3 mil there.
Staal needs to be resigned. Other then that, we can get a real 1st line center, and a good first pairing defenseman with the cap space freed to replace rosival, and then sign some second rate $1 mil / year players to fill the empty spaces (which isn't a downgrade, since those positions are being filled by players worth no more then a mil or so now anyway)
If those moves are made, then we're not really wasting much cap space..
1.4 mil wasted on brashear
drury's probably overpaid by 3 - 4 mil. (keep in mind that not ALL of his 7 million is a waste, he has some value)
Having 10% of your cap space being wasted on useless/overpaid players isn't too bad.
