The trend lately has moved away from the deals that guys like Pronger, Niedermayer and Chara, and more toward a lower cap hit over longer term-- see Keith, Seabrook, etc.

As Arnott, Sullivan, Dumont come off the books, 6 million per year for Weber and 5 for Suter becomes a little more palatable.

I don't think that Suter will sign for less $$ than Weber.........I think they will only take 6 million each...... if it is for 10 years......And even then, I'm not sure that someone else wouldn't offer them more.
