Gagne-Richie-Zherdev
Hartnell-Briere-Leino
JVR-Carter-Giroux
Laps-Betts-Powe
Rookie

Pronger-Carle
Timonen-Coburn
Odonnell-Rookie

Turco
Leighton

We have money for that. Shelley and Meszaros are not required. That 5.1 million gives you more than enough to sign Turco + Powe + keep Gagne + Keep Briere + Zherdev. Seriously, do we really need another 24 year old 4 million d-man? A 1.1 million fighter? Keep them both.

Meszaros is well worth his contract and Shelley isn't. Regardless - they were both just signed and aren't going anywhere. They will both be on the ice on opening night.
