Plus we still have to sign/replace McDonald, Stewart, D'Agostini, Langenbrunner, Nichol and Redden. Keep both Stewart and McDonald and we'll be close to $55m with 4 spots open, which I would be very surprised to see us having the budget for.
If Stewart can stay on a pace to score 25-35 goals, then you find a way to resign him. He is one of the few natural goal scorers that we have. Plus adding the element of toughness. I guess it may also depend on Jaskin's development too. Nice problem to have.
