Replacement for Antro will be max 3 mill if we spend crazy and can fall to minimum if it's filled internally with Scheifele or Telegin (etc). Most likely around Poni's contract though realistically ~1.8.

Hainsey's could be pricey depending on how we take it. The main scenarios I see is 1. Re-sign Hainsey to a 2.5-3 deal 2. Sign a UFA from the 2013 pool also aprox 2.5-3 mill deal 3. Under guidance of Huddy, Clitsome is able to take the big minutes increase (he was originally scouted to have a 4-5 ceiling) 4. We trade for an up-and-comer still under a cheap RFA 5. Someone teaches Redmond to play left side... So anywhere from minimum to high 3 mil I think.

Also, if the cap falls down with new CBA its most likely to include a payroll rollback with it so that would negate those changes %wise
