They would be stupid to not get DiPi's contract off the books without it counting towards the cap. What happens where were are gonna' have to pay the talent that we spent so many years developing and waiting for?

Both rfas Hamonic and MacDonald will be due very nice raises. I believe the new cba will limit the amount of those raises.
I don't see 35/36 yr old Streit breaking the bank. At least not with the NYI.

And while I like Bailey's solid defensive play and pk work, I doubt his 30-35 pts a season, land him a big contract.
