So now they'll have to overpay free agents too. It adds up quick.
Dubynk is already making 3.5 million there is little chance that he gets that big of a pay increase and I agree Hall did not take a hometown discount but as I said even if each of the big 4 make 6 million they will have tons of cap space to bring in free agents, I wouldn't use Hemsky as an example for not taking a home town discount as he wanted a retirement contract and the oilers overpaid him to take a 2 year deal instead.
