I see it as, generally:

Vrbata-Hanzal-[XXXXX]
[Doan]-Vermette-Boedker
Korpikoski-Gordon-Torres
Moss-[Chipchura]-[Brule]

If Doan sticks around, I don't see him getting more than $6 million, and Chipchura and Brule (or whomever they're replaced by) get $3 million combined. I'm sure the team will carry at least 21 and more like 22 or 23 skaters, which is probably another couple million. That leaves only $3 million needed to get to the floor, and if they're planning on bringing in a top six forward, that shouldn't be too hard. Of course, if Doan leaves, his replacement will probably only be worth $3 million or so, which leaves $6 million on the table for a top liner.
