In a nutshell 6M for goalies is not a problem.

But we're already at the cap with Halak/Plekanec due for raises. The guys that are leaving are all making sub 2M, and there's not much leeway to shed salary here since the replacements are going to be making around the same those guys are making.

Basically, the only way to be able to afford Price and Halak if both get raises and end up at 6M total, would be to let something go. Wether it's one or more of hammer, spacek, or simply letting Plekanec walk, we can't just keep the team exactly the same and sign Halak/Price to 6M just because that's what most teams pay for their goaltending.
