2) Colorado - $2.09M per player - 4 forwards needed
3) Phoenix - $2.09M per player - 4 forwards needed
4) New York - $1.92M per player - 4 forwards needed
5) Carolina - $1.56M per player - 7 forwards needed
6) Dallas - $1.60M per player - 2 forwards needed

Do you think it is more likely for a team like Carolina who covets team speed and needs to sign a bunch of forwards, or for a team like Dallas who already has forwards tied up and needs to send out a cheap contract and take in a big contract?

Am I setting myself up for disappointment by thinking that this could actually happen?
Contrary to the mentaily here, the Habs are not 100% looking to dump depends on the return and also what they can get to replace him. There are a few UFA options, but after Richards and Jokinen it's pretty thin at center. Connolly has lots of injury issues, Arnott is probably no longer a regular top 6, fits better as #3 center. Maybe the Habs can get Lecavalier as TB is desperate to shed salary...but Lecavalier has his own albatross contract, not sure it's worth it.
