This looks stupid but it helps both of us I think. I know on my end it does due to my insane cap issues.
In two years, Datsyuk ($8.3), Franzen ($4), and Quincey ($5.6) all come off the books. Volchenkov ($4.25) is done after this year.

Aren't those all better ways of getting rid of cap space (Dats should retire by then, or come way, way down) than dumping Fluery for Howard?

(BTW, I wouldn't bet the house on Mrazek as a starter...)
