Next Summer Free Agency

Next offseason, we will have the players off the books:

Hamrlik - 5.5mill
Gill - 2.25mill
Auld - 1mill
Kostitsyn - 3.25mill
Pouliot - 1.35mill
Darche - 500k
Pyatt - 500k
Lapierre - 900k
Boyd - 650k
O'byrne - 941k

Almost 9 mill just in capspace there.

Now would you think it would be a good idea to try and resign Markov around the same amount of money he is making now, then see if we can try to land a big fish for our backend in Chara?

Gomez - 7.35mill
Gionta -5mill
Cammalleri - 6mill
Plekanec - 5mill
Eller - 1.3mill
Moen - 1.5mill

Markov - 6mill
Chara - 6.5mill
Subban - 875k
Gorges - 2.5mill
Spacek - 3.833mill
Carle - - 700k

Price - 3mill

Now with the prices I have listed, It would come up to 49.6mill. We would ave 10mill left depending on what the cap does next summer. That 10 mill would have to fill 6 forward spots, a backup goalie, and a #6/#7 dman.

Do you think its possible to make the roster work with adding Chara possibly and do think Chara would be a good signing for us?

We have players such as Pacioretty, Avtsin, Engqvist possibly ready to go next summer as well. Weber could become a full time dman as well. So filling the 6 forwards and 6/7 dman could come cheap for the Habs also making our lineup really really young.
