What's available?

I'd say available is our 1st, Bennett (If he doesn't work out and is given a good 15 games or so with Crosby) + one of Harrington, Morrow or Pouliot. Potentially change Bennett for Kennedy if he does well.

The UFA's this year could make things interesting. We have $52m on the payroll for next year with Kennedy, Cooke, Dupuis, Tangradi, Adams, Jeffrey, Lovejoy and Bortuzzo needing resigning. Hopefully Perry or Ryan leave and we can get one of those whilst retaining most of above.
Don't forget Letang will be due for a raise the year after.
