I think the cap ramifications make this deal very interesting, depending on how PG chooses to play this. Halak probably would have commanded about 4M/year after his playoff performance, so we do save quite a bit. With 12M or so in cap space, this off-season has gotten very interesting. Even if Pleks gets 5M, we're still left with 7M to sign Carey, Carey's backup and a few other RFAs. Could it be that we may finally have a solidified top 6 going into the regular season?

My (bold) prediction: Pleks' rights are traded by draft day, Matthew Lombardi signs on July 1st, and we use the remaining cap space to target Marleau or Frolov. Eller and Lombardi battle for the 2nd line center spot, with the loser centering the 3rd line.
