Buyout Chris Drury and give him a front office/special assistant coach position (PK/faceoffs) as it is rumored he will accept a buyout as of today in the NY post

Sign Brad Richards, I am expecting he will get a 7 year contract that pays him over $50 million like he wants, I wouldn't give him more than 5 years personally and take a bigger cap hit, but I suspect he will get 7 years with a 7.5 million dollar cap hit, front loaded (10, 8, 8, 7, 7 6.25, 6.25) with a No trade clause, BUT not a no movement clause

The real question is does Sather go after Brunette or Jokinen to play on the top line or do we stick with Wolski, I am going to stick with him since he is training with Underhill, I don't think they would have invited him if they planned to buy him out, we will know by thursday

This is how I see it, we could see a return of Eminger or maybe Sather signs Babchuk, this lineup is with only one UFA, and thats not Sather's style at all


Wojtek Wolski ($3.800m) / Brad Richards ($7.500m) / Marian Gaborik ($7.500m)
Brandon Dubinsky ($4.000m) / Artem Anisimov ($1.850m) / Ryan Callahan ($4.000m)
Chris Haglein ($0.662m) / Derek Stepan ($0.875m) / Ruslan Fedotenko ($1.500m)
Sean Avery ($1.937m) / Brian Boyle ($1.850m) / Brandon Prust ($0.800m)
/ Erik Christensen ($0.925m)

Marc Staal ($3.975m) / Daniel Girardi ($3.325m)
Ryan McDonagh ($1.300m) / Michael Sauer ($1.500m)
Tim Erixon ($1.750m) / Pavel Valentenko ($0.850m)

Henrik Lundqvist ($6.875m) / Martin Biron ($0.875m)

Chris Drury ($3.717m)

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $61,366,667; BONUSES: $425,000
CAP SPACE (21-man roster): $2,933,333

I love having close to $3 million in cap space for a trade at the deadline, we have kids who can be called up in Zucc, MDZ, Kundratek, Newbury, Weise, etc
