San Jose: $54.3M committed on 14 contracts
Vancouver: $55.4M committed on 13 contracts with Edler up.
Philadelphia: $52.5M committed on 15 contracts with Timonen and Pronger to replace
San Jose: $54.3M committed on 14 contracts with Clowe up.
Chicago: $57.2M committed on 17 contracts
Buffalo: $49.6M committed on 14 contracts
NYR: $51.8M committed on 16 contracts with McDonagh, Stepan and Del Zotto to resign
Pittsburgh: $52.5M on 15 contracts
Tampa Bay: $57.5M on 15 contracts
Montreal: $60.1M on 16 contracts---This pretty much assures that Gomez gets bough out.
Actually it is 16 contracts at $53.3, 11 forwards and 5 D. They probably have to let Horton and Ference walk at the end of the season and bring in a couple of rookies, but besides that I think they can be under $60 million as long as Rask is signed at a reasonable rate.
