Enstrom just signed for 5.75, and he's a slightly inferior defenseman to Edler, so you can imagine what the FA market for d-men would be. It would be nearly impossible to replace a player like Edler, and especially for you y2k, I know you're all about the short-term goals of the team. There is zero chance this team is better without Edler in the short-term, (or in the long-term)
We can't compete without the twins either, so they get 8m each. Higgins is a great 3rd liner with 20 goal potential, he gets Brouwer money 3.6m. Hansen too, he gets 3m. Hopefully Booth doesn't get back to scoring 30 or we won't be able to ice a team with Edler making 6m.
