When their ELCs run out, I expect all of our big for to get more than Tavares. RNH could even get something closer to Kopitar money very early in his career. If he puts together an 80+ point 3rd season, he'll get 6-6.5M easily.

Best hope, get them all signed for similar dollars an term, at about 6M per season.

Horcoff and Hemsky's hits are gone and by that time UFAs actually want to play in Edmonton. You can make things work with 4 bigger ticket forwards. Just never overpay for goaltending and depth.
