If we take Havlat though whose deal doesn't expire for how many years? At a $5 million cap hit, and the cap is around $60 million next year we may not be able to lock up Clarkson, and Zajac whether they're UFA's, or RFA's.

The fact that we might be a ceiling team with the same lineup we have now in a season or two is frightening. I don't see us trading for cap space either. Remember we have RFA's like Henrique who will get a raise. Josefson will likely get a small one, and Tedenby might not get anything significant if he doesn't progress much. Who knows with Butler too?

Hopefully we don't overpay Zubrus next year. Unless he has a playoffs like Sal I don't see him getting what he got. I'd give him $2.5 max, and hopefully one year deals until he retires. Let's be serious here. He's older than a player like Poni, and they're similar players. Poni has been getting contracts under $2 million the past couple years.
