You could get Ribs, waive Emery and sign someone like Harding or Vokoun (I'm aware he may go to Lokomotiv) to push Crawford to the bench if he can't rebound. Cap space is not an issue. We can make one big move and a couple lesser ones. But, dumping Frolik to a cap floor team is very doable and very necessary, just doesn't fit in Chicago.
