So of 48 contracts, we:
- renew 6
- add 6
- drop 9

Net = 45

There are 10 guys we could potentially re-up, but most of them are AHL'ers who could be replaced by entry-level contracts.

Not to mention off-season trades.

I'm just not worried about the 50 contract limit right now.
The problem is; we need to replace 9 players in the AHL and 10 players in the NHL (if we want to carry 23). That's with Lundin and Latendresse out. If we can stick PMB on the LTIR that would help.

I don't know if we can get Houston to sign more PTOs (still a bit wish washy on the entire PTO vs NHL contract) but the roster we have next year is this:

Heatley
Koivu
Cullen
Setoguchi
Clutterbuck
Brodziak
Powe
Gilbert
Scandella
Spurgeron
Prosser
Backstrom
Hackett

Maybe: Bouchard unless we stick him on the shelf (and I don't know if that counts or not)

So between 13-14 NHL players

In the AHL they have...Uh...I actually don't know. Not many I know that. Foucault, Broda, Kuemper, Cuma, Bagnall...so five players are signed to NHL contracts.

So that means:

23 - 5 = 16 players they need to sign to fill out their roster (which can also be done with some PTOs but not all)
23- 13 = 10 players we need to sign back to fill out our roster

It'll be tight.
