So that would leave Leblanc as Bourque's replacement on the 2nd line.

MaxPac - DD - Cole
Leblanc - Pleks - Gio
Moen - Eller - Arm
Prust - Noke - White

Gorges - Subban
Markov - Emelin
Diaz - Bouillon

Actually, from what I've read the new CBA would include a provision where contracts signed in the previous CBA would have their cap hits reduced in accordance with the total salary cap reduction. If something like that made its way to into the new CBA it would be an asset to teams that were close to the cap ceiling right now, and would be particularly forgiving to those who had signed bigger longer contracts. Makes me really wish they'd sign PK in a hurry before the current CBA expires.

EDIT: Excuse me, I was wrong. There would be NO rollback, haha wow I can't believe it.
