Better to manage with what they have now and ride out those bonus penalties.

If they walk:

Troy Brouwer ($1.025m) / Jonathan Toews ($6.300m) / Patrick Kane ($6.300m)
Kyle Beach ($1.170m) / Patrick Sharp ($3.900m) / Marian Hossa ($5.275m)
Viktor Stalberg ($0.850m) / Dave Bolland ($3.375m) / Tomas Kopecky ($1.200m)
Bryan Bickell ($0.541m) / Jeff Taffe ($0.550m) / Jack Skille ($0.600m)
Igor Makarov ($0.552m)

Brent Seabrook ($3.500m) / Duncan Keith ($5.538m)
Niklas Hjalmarsson ($3.500m) / Brian Campbell ($7.142m)
John Scott ($0.512m) / 998K or less UFA
Jassen Cullimore ($0.500m)

Marty Turco ($1.500m) / Corey Crawford ($0.800m)

SALARY CAP: $59,400,000; CAP PAYROLL: $58,791,590; BONUSES: $390,000
CAP SPACE (21-man roster): $998,410
