Next year Regehr, Leopold, and Pardy come off the books, freeing up plenty of space to wheel and deal (or resign as necessary). If they choose to go down the buyout route and take Leino off the books, then they're in really good shape.

It seems like Darcy and crew anticipated well and didn't go all out and hit 70 million this offseason. Now let's see if he makes moves between now and the puck drop.
I agree,

I was thinking more about maybe 5 years from now if we were pressed against the cap if this would be a potential option.
