I'd take Cammallerri at 3M for next year, J-Bo at 3.3M for next year, and even Sarich for 1M for next year.
Thing is, all three guys are UFA's after the 2013-2014 season, but adding them at those numbers really would position the Pens.
Thing is, if you're Feaster, what do you charge the Pens for that privilege of having those three at half cap hits. IMO, you're talking one of the blue chip defensive prospects as a centerpiece.
Then again, who's to say that Shero doesn't consider doing the same thing with Paul Martin after this season. Martin at 5M isn't really appetizing. Martin at 3.5M has more significant value.
