Unless Carey totally craps out this upcoming season, there is no way he takes less 5 per on a multi-year deal. If they qualify him and he ends up only getting a deal for one year and say 3 mill, it will be his last season with us. Thomas is older and got his max payday from Boston, Price is still has his best years coming up, he'll cost at least 5 million a year.
