none... for the right package.

that said, players (roster) who would require a pretty huge/clear overpayment:

Price

Subban
Gorges
Emelin

MaxPac
DD
Eller
Leblanc
Cole
Pleks


That, imo, is a quality group of players to build around... especially if our top-pick this year provides us with a game-breaking type asset within the next 3-4 seasons.

If we had that core, supplemented by 15M$ of quality (instead of Bourque/Gomez/Kaberle), we'd have a pretty damn good team. Just imagine replacing those 3 with 15M$ worth of effective top-9/top-4 players... let alone adding 2 quality 7M$+ players!


a good GM could easily turn us in the right direction, and while (this year's haul aside) we don't have a boat load of elite prospects, we have a ton of prospects who look very much destined to at least quality depth/secondary roles, and having a pipeline of that kind of cheap/entry-level-RFA talent in place for years to come should make it very easy to manage the cap while adding/keeping elite talent.
