and then they still will have MPS/Gagner/Hemsky/Pekham/Petry..

I mean it's a possibility that they will be able to conserve said core, but the if the cap fails to rise, perhaps even lowering, some moves will have to be made..
Sure Yakupov won't be as available as other players, but eventually I believe that for the right price he will be available.
Who says he won't outplay Hall, and make him available instead ? I mean, he didn't even play a single game in the NHL, who knows really ?

About those lineups, would have loved to see Nischushkin for Russia...
