I, like others, don't mind Souray as a player and the money doesn't really matter especially with Lydman a UFA after the season. The length of the deal gets me. But I also imagine many teams offered two year deals. The Ducks adding the 3rd is the only reason he went with us.

It isn't a great deal but I don't think it's too bad either. As with everything time will tell.
Current cap - 47,076,000, Cap Floor 54.2M

8 forwards, 7 defensemen, 2 goalies

Selanne - 4M

Add a few kids

Bonino - 1-1.25M?
Palmieri - 1,025,000
Holland - 1,295,000
McMillan - 875,000

Cap floor achieved.

They don't HAVE to overspend on free agents. They can just carry a 13th forward. Hopefully they trade for someone decent rather than overspend for a scrub. And yes, I'm aware that the 4th line that would create would be the weakest, softest blah blah blah, I'm just crunching numbers.
