It may be possible to keep Gabby through next year depending on a few things, but I think the best option is likely a good trade rather than taking it to UFA.

Next year we need to sign McDonagh, Stepan, and Hagelin along with adding whatever DZ is going to cost into the equation and finding replacements for (or re-signing) Halpern, and Eminger/Sauer.

At $70M we'd have $18M minus whatever DZ gets.
-If the cap stays around $64M that's somewhere in the vicinity of $9M to achieve what I described above.
-If the cap goes down to $60M that's around $5M to achieve it. 5 ain't enough... 9 is though.

I can't make any predictions in terms of salaries or cap, that's RB's area of expertise =)
