I have a hard time believing NJ can go on without either letting some big contracts go or letting big guns walk. The team is bankrupt and Kovalchuk's salary goes from 6 to 11 mil.

They have 29+ mil committed to only 8 forwards and 15.5 to 5 d-men. By re-signing Brodeur to 5-6 mil, they are already at 50 mil. While having to add a back up goalie, 2 d-men and 5 forwards.

I wouldn't be surprised if they let Parise and salvador walk PLUS dumped somebody like Zubrus.
