Would have been nice to re-sign those guys and add Cammalleri..
And no commitment on the ice either, aside from Koivu.

The 18 mil you talk about is overblown. Gio and Cammy could easily be traded. The cap alarmist diatribes are becoming quite pedantic and dull, and especially quite overblown. All teams would rather spend to the cap and you actually NEED to fill the roster.
