Any chance we can sign everyone ?

It will probably take at least $6 million to sign both goaltenders. If our offers are less than $3 million to either one of them, we risk losing them as an RFA and getting very little in return. Because of that, I think there is a good chance that one of the two will be gone.
The only other logical place to look is at Hammer and Spacek. Because of their ages and the size of their contracts we might not get much (if anything) in return but that is the price we may have to pay to shed some salary.
Trading one goaltender and moving either Hammer or Spacek would give us some breathing room to sign the remaining players and maybe even take on one more significant salary.
It is a bit frustrating because we do have a pretty decent core, but the problem is we are paying a bit too much for that core and it leaves very few options open to the GM.
