It depends. They can't sign Bryzgalov without losing some salary. If they move one big ticket guy, and let Leino walk, they can keep Versteeg.
If they don't want to trade Carter/Richards/Briere/Timonen, then two players have to go: Versteeg or Hartnell, Carle or Coburn.
A lot hinges on what Bryz's cap hit is, which is why they have to get an agreement in place a few days before the draft, even if it isn't filed with the league until July 1.
One other thing about Versteeg. He played for Tallon in Chicago, as did our boy Matt Walker. Maybe Dale will take MW's contract too - a decent player for his third pair and will help him reach the cap floor.
