Two summers ago,Callahan got his 2 year deal done early after he filed for arbitration. Dubinsky was the 2009 Staal. This coming summer,Callahan and Dubinsky are arbitration eligible again. AA is the 2011 Dubinsky/Staal with no arbitration rights. If Sauer establishes himself and plays the majority of the games,he will make more than the NHL minimum. He has arbitration rights too. The money will have to come from somewhere.
Where is that money coming from and where is the $7 million plus it will cost to sign a 31 year old Brad Richards coming from?
If ever there was a reason to find a way to trade Roszi that's it. He's not good enough to take up cap room we need for Dubs, Cally and Artie. What happens this season with him gone does not matter it's about the future of this team. Thank you Drury, Redden and Roszi your continuous presence will make this summer a nightmare.
