Brunette or Gagne if either team feels they would benifit from having another year of a good player.(And a chance to extend him if he fits well into thier system/rebuilding.)

Then we clear all our forward salary except the big three, Cooke, and two RFAs.
Then its time to go shopping.

Eh maybe. I doubt he'd get anything over 2 after just one year. Even Burrows isnt making more than 2 million.
It think its still do-able though. If Kunitz goes.
Kunitz/Rupp/Asham/Comrie salarys=2 FA winger. 3 million range
Dupuis=Letestu money
Adams salary=Jeffrey
Godard salary=Re-signed/Other enforcer
I like it. It's a tight fit though. That 6 million for Crosby's wingers puts us in the market for one or two from this calibre of player:
- Zherdev
- Moulson
- Backes
- Fleischmann
- Jokinen
- Laich
- Upshall
- Vrbata
- Sturm
- Brunette

Nobody on that list is great. Still I think you can make some interesting lines with Crosby and 2 of those guys.
