Good news is there aren't really many among those guys who are core players or who will get big bucks. If Wolski doesn't work out that's 3.8M freed up right there...plus the 2M extra we get back that Drury counts next year. So nearly 7M to play with (assuming no cap increase) to re-up a couple of Prust/Biron/Zucc/MDZ. If Avery/Christensen/Fedetenko are gone that's nearly another 4.5M. So we could have at least 11M in cap space to work with. I can't see the previous 4 guys costing more than a couple million extra to sign...heck even if you call it 3M to bring back all of them we'd still have 8M left over. Certainly more than enough to go after a UFA winger next summer if we don't think Kreider or Thomas are ready to step in just yet. One way or another we should be looking pretty good going into 2012-2013.
