Jovo's 6.5 million off the books
Fiddler's 1.1 million may or may not be
Belanger .750 will be off the books as he is not expected to re-sign

That's a total of 8 350 000 that is likely not going to be re-signed.

If Bryzgalov were to sign elsewhere that's another 4.25 million off the books and Vrbata made 3 million last year although he is expected to be re-signed should the team remain in Phoenix.

Coyotes will NOT just allow some other teams to poach arguably their best player.
Good point. But it comes down to if Yandle really wants to play in Winnipeg or not.
