Riiiight.
Forwards:

Briere, Richards, Voracek, Hartnell, Giroux, JVR, Versteeg, Nodl, Betts, Powe, Wellwood, Read, FA F @ $3 mil --~$33.77 million

Timonen, Pronger, Meszaros, Carle, Coburn, Bartulis, FA Dman @1.3 -- ~$23.8 million

Bob and Bryz -- $7.41 million

Total = $65 million

That's a 22 man roster with giving rough estimates to Voracek, our RFAs, and the two free agents. Also would have that first from the Carter deal. There wasn't a whole lot that had to be done to put this roster together.

Losing Richards is a huge deal from a defensive standpoint...and from what we've seen the last six playoffs, defensive hockey all down your roster really counts.

While we're on the topic of assets/prospect, let's look at the returns for Carter and Richards vs. what we gave up for Pronger:

Schenn+Simmonds+Voracek+1st+2nd+3rd (2 players @ 26)

Lupul+Sbisa+1st+1st (1 player @ 34 years old)

Something doesn't add up.
