I'd also be surprised if we roll into camp with the current lineup. I don't think he's done yet, so that will obviously influence next summer's deals.
Another thing to factor in is that people are using worst case scenario numbers. Leino had a nice playoff run, but he could just as easily flame out during the regular season, and then maybe the Flyers don't want to bring him back. Maybe Zherdev, disappoints. It's a long season and we're basing the costs on best case projections. Things have a funny way of sorting themselves out.
