Kovalchuk...if we can shed some more salary and lock up Staal.

OT but related. I'd rather ride out the dead weight for a couple years and use UFA money to lock up our core in anticipation of Grachev, Kreider, Stepan, etc joining in by the time Drury's time is up and Redden has a managable buy-out in the same year. Then see who or whats available that fits our needs at that time. The benefit of being NY is we can always buy 1st line talent to fill in the gaps of a solid team, which is something we never seem to do, it's usually the opposite and we wind up trading away good young core types and try to replace those players by overpaying for other teams 3rd line castoffs.

Also...if we spend like mad this July 1st, dont we risk not being able to pay MDZ, Staal, Duby, and Cally in the next few years.
