1. Ennis re-signs at 3.25

3. They aren't signing Doan

Even if 1 or both of Grigs/Girgs make the team... they will still have well over 5 million in cap space...
I have a feeling that Ennis will get an extension with a cap hit of $2.33M - 2.5M.

I also have a feeling that Regier will sign one of the older UFA centers remaining (Langkow, Arnott, Morrison) for experience and as insurance to back up the Ennis/Hodgson tandem. Such a move will probably happen shortly before training camp opens IMO - he's likely going to wait til then to see if the Doan / trade options disappear.
