The Pens will send Martin to WBS if they can't trade him so that's not an issue. Sid will take 8.7M again, so that's not an issue either:

Zach Parise ($7.000m) / Sidney Crosby ($8.700m) / Pascal Dupuis ($1.500m)
Chris Kunitz ($3.725m) / Evgeni Malkin ($8.700m) / James Neal ($5.000m)
Matt Cooke ($1.800m) / Brandon Sutter ($2.067m) / Tyler Kennedy ($2.000m)
Dustin Jeffrey ($0.575m) / Joe Vitale ($0.550m) / Eric Tangradi ($0.800m)
Kris Letang ($3.500m) / Ryan Suter ($7.000m)
Brooks Orpik ($3.750m) / Matt Niskanen ($2.500m)
Simon Despres ($0.840m) / Deryk Engelland ($0.567m)
Marc-Andre Fleury ($5.000m)
Tomas Vokoun ($2.000m)
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $70,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $67,573,333; BONUSES: $0
CAP SPACE (20-man roster): $2,726,667

You were saying...
First off you better hope the CBA doesn't bring the HRR% below 55% for the players. (It probably will, but who knows) Secondly, good luck signing any of those guys (Especially Letang) once their ELCs are done.

And finally, you can't send Martin down to WBS because he has a No Movement Clause.

So you were saying?

So mad the Preds are in our division cause they could probably never live down trading his rights to us.
I doubt Poile gives Suter's rights to anybody. He thinks he can still get him back and shipping him somewhere else would most likely kill that chance, so he's gonna need a good deal if he's gonna do it, and nobody is gonna give a good deal for a guy that seems determined to make it to July 1st.
