Any chance we can sign everyone ?

What do you think ?

Say we resign Pleks at 5 mils, is there any way we can keep both goalies?

Most of our Top 6 is alredy signed (Pouilot is most likely getting a raise, though !) I put him at 1.5M

Top 6 = around 28.1M

The bottom 6 is a bit trickyer. The only players signed right now are Moen and Patches. At 1.5 and .9 M respectively. The Laraque experiment is still on the books, also (1.5M).
4 M for 2 bottom 6 players. We still need 4 of those, which will hopefully all sign or be called up for around 1M each.

Bottom 6 = Minimum 8 M

Our D is signed, though we are missing the last player of this group. Be it Bergeron or Subban or Weber, he should't be payed more than a million or so.

Defence = 20.5 M or so

Which gives us a total of around 57 M, the cap hit for next year being thought to become 57.7 M

So we have a problem.

As much as I like Hamerlik, his contract is the kind of salary we need to shed to get where we want to be. And as much as I like Price, he might need to be part of a deal to get us rid of Hamerlik for a good young defenceman..

Anyways, good luck, Gauthier !
