Also have to take into consideration the new CBA coming up and hoping that the salary cap doesn't drop too much.
Kimmo's 6.33 is coming off after this year but if he's willing to play i think they'll try to re-sign him too. Thats just one more person to add to the list of names you compiled that will need new contracts all before Briere's 6.5 mil comes off. I think it's doable but with the uncertainty in the new CBA (specifically the salary cap, RFA contracts and the potential for a cap on the number of years offered in deals) its hard to tell how its all gonna play out and giving doan a deal for more then 2 years will just complicate matters further. Homer has some tough decisions to make in the coming years.
