PLus the 8.3 million in cap space - 3 mil to Gorges = 5 million

That's 15.833 million to sign Yemelin, Subban, Eller and Price all RFA's
First of all, I dont see why we would have to get rid of Kostitsyn.

But the point is that even if their respective salaries is off the books, you still have to find some good players to replace them, and they're not going to play for free.

A 2nd line winger like Kostitsyn, thats 3.5M, at the very least.
A solid 3rd line player, able to play nicely on the PK, 1.5M is very fair.
A top-4 D, you'll need 4M, at least...

Its better to play it safe in the current economic climate, not to mention the CBA situation.
