I personally wouldn't mind seeing Matt Carle walk because it's clear he is not the type of defensemen we need at the moment, but indications are that he will be resigned.
You have to use a higher upper limit, early estimate is $69MM, they may negotiate a different share for the players in the new CBA but we don't know about that.
Your new figure on Carle is low, 25 minutes, 40 point defenseman earn a lot money in free agency, no matter how good we think they are. Wideman got $4MM in '08 (RFA, 7%), Giordano got $4MM last year (RFA, 6,3%), Hamhuis got $4.5MM in '10 (UFA, 7.5%), Kronwall has a new deal starting next year for $4.75MM (UFA, 7%) ... I expect around 7.5% for him, Hamhuis seems to be a good comparism, not a #1 on any team, can play many minutes, no team discount, $5.2MM for Carle.
