I expected (if the player signed in Philadelphia):

Leighton - 1.50m/year
Biron - 1.75m/year
Ellis - 2.50m/year
Mason - 2.75m/year
Turco - 3.00m/year
Nabokov - 5.00m/year

Hamhuis - 4.00m/year
Martin - 4.50m/year
Volchenkov 5.00m/year
You go after Biron cheap because he is a known commodity, has played with the guys, and has no injury history.

We cannot afford those defensemen for more than one year. You know that Chris. Going after those guys for any serviceable length of time only screws our cap situation in future years. Unless we get offer sheets of some other glorious things.
