I'll be shocked if we still have Lindback, so he's likely replaced by Smith on an ELC or a vet backup at 1 mil or less.

If Blum is up for a contract(I dont think he but maybe so) he isnt making a case for a raise

We can fit Suter, Weber, Rinne and Parise in for a total of 28-30 million. The cap midpoint is obviously gonna get blown but we can fit under the true cap with that
Blum is up for a new contract, but agreed--he's having a questionable "contract year."

Wilson's contract may surprise you. RFA means little...these days, they're cashing in off the ELC. I wouldn't be surprised to see him get 3-3.5 million, honestly.
