Boom, roster stays together.

Defender X, #7 and #8 could all be reclamation projects signed for cheap too, or one or two of our own prospects cycling in and out.

Not even implausible any more. I like it.
Corrardo makin the team would help as his cap hit is about 600k, especially if he was our 6th Defenseman, that would save 1-1.5 for those two years, where we could THEN keep Booth until his contract expires. But the lack of Guys on ELCs making our team really hurts. Well only have 1 most likely(Kassian). Theyll prob get Jensen to spend a year in the AHL.
