What happens if Gorges plays an important role on the top four this season and is a plus player and Kostitsyn scores 30 goals? You don't think teams will come knocking and offer Kostitsyn $5,000,000.00 a season? The guy is less than 26 years old and has not even reached his prime yet, which is 27 to 29 in the NHL.

Gorges on the other hand might stay at his salary, but not if he plays an important role on the team and is playing with Markov, see: Souray, Streit and Komisarek!!!
We have $26,217,857 in projected cap space.

Are you telling my that:

Price 6,000,000$ per
PK 6,000,000$ per
Kostitsyn 4,000,000$ per
Gorges 3,500,000$ per

Does not fit into that? Heck we could still sign a big UFA after that or re-sign the likes of Gill, Moen, etc and that's if they all get the money above linked.

They may very well sign for less. You make it sound like keeping them inhibits us from signing these guys. It doesn't in the slightest. Gorges will likely re-sign.
