I'll tell you this much, if we sign Brad Richards it spells the end of Drury. He will inevitably be bought out of the last year of his contract to a) make cap room and b) no point in having a guy making 7 mill as your 4th line center. I'd love to see our middle next year look like richards, anisimov, stepan, boyle (re-signed).

Avery(1.9)-Stepan(820k)-Grachev(820ish I believe)
Boogaard(1.6 )-Boyle(600k)-Prust(850k)

Give Kreider a year in Hartford and insert him into avery's spot the following year when avery comes off the books. Re-sign Frolov 4 years 4-4.5 max per, anymore than that tell him to f off.

Drury bought out
2011-2012 cap hit: $3,716,667
2012-2013 cap hit: $1,666,667


2011-2012 team cap: 60.26 mill. (including potential raises and drury buy-out) assume the cap will be around 61 mill. leaving us room for a spare forward/dman. The following year rosi, avery, prust, boyle will come off the books to provide funds for raises to our rfas. Were in great shape!
