Timonen has 1 more year after this year and I think he drops to 3M...Pronger's hit isn't massive either. They can fit in another number 1 since Timonen likely will retire after 2012. The time will be this offseason to position themselves. It's not about effin Mez and Carle not playing like a number 1 it's about using them and their salaries as leverage to secure a much needed asset for the very near future while you can and then finding equally avg D men at reasonable prices. I'm not going to go on cap geek and go through all the different scenarios but it's not like it can't be worked out. I agree it might be tough to have a fairly solid corp but again I think it's doable but they will have to be pretty savy with shedding salary and replacing the right players.
