Another thing to consider, which I rarely see brought up is that Carle is a UFA after this season anyway, and chances are he wouldn't be brought back (unless the new TV deal really gives us a ton of money). So why not move him now to get something while he still has quite a bit of value.
The only player we really have to give money to is JVR next year.
Coburn won't get a huge raise. Carle wouldn't either. Versteeg, if we keep him, wouldn't either.
So we're going to get a nice chunk of cap space, but it's not like we need more. JVR's the only one going to get a substantial raise that year.
Then I believe the year after that Timonen and Hartnell come off the books for another 10.50m to spend on a new defensive anchor.
