We might be stuck with Gomez for at least another year...if so I'd sit him down as a coach and say "ok, forget about playing offence...forget about the 7mil you're making...I want you to play shutdown hockey!" Have him as the shutdown center...I believe he's done it before....

Cole (4.5) - Desharnais (0.850) - Paciorretti (1.625)

Jagr (3) - Plekanec (5) - Kovalev (1.5)

Moen (1.75) - Gomez (7,357,143) - Gionta (5)

Bourque (3,333,333) - Eller (1,750,000) - White (950k)

Staubitz (750k)

FORWARDS - $37,365,476

Markov (5.75) - Emelin (2)

Subban (4.5) - Gorges (3.9)

Kaberlei (4.25) - Diaz (1.5)

DEFENSE - $21,900,000

Price (5.25)

Budaj (1.15)

GOALIE - $6,400,000


TOTAL: $65,665,476

SALARY Cap is $70,300,000

Cap Available: $4,634,524

It leaves us with some room to sign a decent defenseman...however, if we could somehow get rid of Gomez's Contract (amnesty buyout or send to minors)...that would give us $11,991,667 in available cap space....
enough to possibly throw $7mill at Ryan Suter

...which then we would need to look at a 3rd/4th line center
Kovalev... ?
