I dont think we trade Rinne.

I do think we could trade Suter if its clear he wants to leave after this coming season.
Put you can't spend $4 mil on a guy with more than 1 year left this year and have that money to spend next June/July. did you see the money Philly just spent? We can't pay Pekka 30 mil over the next 4 years, even if its a 9 year deal that is a 5.something cap hit. And it's been our history to let our goalies go. Just don't think we'll put that kind of cash into a goalie. We have lots of guys up next year too, if you haven't looked. Kostitsyn, Wilson, Tootoo, Geoffrion, O'Reilly, Suter, Buillon, Blum, Pekka, Lindback and potentially Weber. That's a lot more than we've had due in a long time. a mere 5 Mil wont be enough of a raise for all those guys. I do NOT think we will be spending the $4 mil on a forward, it wouldn't make sense long term, unless he only has 1 year left on his contract.
