What about this going into next season...

Kopitar, Carter, Richards, Doughty = $25,000,000
Gagne, Brown, Williams, Greene and Scuderi = $16,200,000

That's $41,000,000 tied up in 6 forwards and 3 defencemen.

Salary cap is dropping to probably closer to $60M from $64M.

You have about $19-22M to spend on 6 forwards and 3 defencemen. You have to replace Willie Mitchell ($3.5M) and moving a guy like Richardson ($1.2M) doesn't help you since you have to replace him with a player that will cost you at least around $1M. You save a couple hundred grand.

Moving Brown or Gagne are the only solutions to improving the overall team.
