James Van Riemsdyk ($4.250m) - hopefully fully healed
Brayden Schenn ($3.110m)
Wayne Simmonds ($1.750m)
Jakub Voracek ($3.000m) - small raise for potential, hasn't put up the numbers for a big pay day yet in my opinion
Sean Couturier ($1.375m)
Daniel Briere ($6.500m)
Matt Read ($0.900m)
Maxime Talbot ($1.750m)
Zac Rinaldo ($0.544m)
It's time to let Jagr walk. Couturier needs a top 9 role, and he can't get that while Jagr is here. Of course on top of that, Wellwood and Talbot can clearly play in the top 9.

Jagr is redundant and needlessly expensive here, as good as he is.

Also keep in mind that the salary numbers for Couturier and Schenn are 0.93m and 0.90m respectively.

Braydon Coburn ($4.500m)
Nicklas Grossman ($3.000m) - has been more than solid, this might not be enough to keep him here but i can dream
Marc-Andre Bourdon ($1.000m) - small raise if he can prove good enough to be a starter
Andrej Meszaros ($4.000m)
Erik Gustafsson ($0.900m)
I don't mind this one bit. If Bryzgalov continues to play at an NHL quality level than this defense is fine. If he does not, then we have to go get Suter.

No to Niko Hovinen. We have no way of knowing whether or not he's ready. We keep Bob for the time being, and Bob's cap hit is less than Hovinen's at 0.90m.
