3rd pair: $3M (Bouillon-Komisarek)
Subs: $ 1M (Streit-Coté)

Goalie 1: $3M Huet
Goalie 2: $2M Aebisher

Total: $40M

$40M. That's about the amount of money the owner is prepared to spend this year in player salaries. I don't think BG even had $5M to spend on a UFA. Standing pat wasn't a strategy, it was an obligation. No money, no candy.

in other words, we overpaid a few players and our line-up sucks.
