So after making the calcul, thats 20 millions saved on those guys..

Then we have to resign Price Subban Emelin Eller Diaz White and Geoffrion..

I think Price will get a long term contract and I expect 7 M per year.. 7M - his actual salary = 4.25

Subban should get about a 2M raise.. Emelin about 1.5 and lets say a total of 1.5M raise for the others.. so 4.25 + 2 + 1.5 + 1.5 = 9.25

So the money saved - raises of our own RFAs = about 10 millions..

So after signing Price and all our guys, we still have 10M free to spend.. not that bad..

I think Mike is right. More likely that Kaberle is traded and Gomez is terminated with lukewarm prejudice.

I would also trade Gionta - remove another 5 mil and make a run for Parise & Suter.

Gionta's year is a sign of what we can expect from him. For once let's trade a player while his value is still quite high and not when he's worth a bag of used pucks.
