They have $5m+ cap hits through 2015 due to Kane, Toews, Hossa, Campbell, Keith, and Seabrook. $36 million per year tied up in 6 players. And Sharp will be due for a big raise (currently making $3.9m).
How much money do you think he's going to get? $5-$5.5 mil seems plausible.... With the cap already going up $3 mil next season, I'd say they could squeeze him in. Although what happens when the CBA expires is your guess as good as mine.
