Carcillo-Carter-Giroux
Shelley-Betts-Lappy

All assuming Gagne's salary is what ultimately is gone. But by some miracle Homer wakes up one morning and realizes having both Carle and Meszaros is a mistake and trades one of them, where does that leave Shelley?

1.1 million dollars to show up to the arena and end up watching from the locker room?
We seem headed in that direction, yes... and, therefore, the VERY GOOD 4th line we had last year of Carcillo-Betts-Lappy will continue to not be put together.

Of course, who knows, maybe Maroon or someone makes the team out of camp and pushes Shelley out of the lineup. There's also the whole Powe thing. If we re-sign Powe, I can't see Shelley dressing all that often...
