2) If he DOES retire, I'm 100% certain we will not, I repeat, will not sign a 6m player to 'replace' him. We'll move guys up the depth chart and sign guys in the spots of the players moved up. We won't sign a Weber, we'll sign another Stuart. Which isn't a bad thing.
I'm not sure how you can be sure of such things.
I hope you're not suggesting that Lidstrom needs to be paid as much as Rafalski, just because he's better than Rafalski. If so, that means Ericsson should get about $5.5 million.
