UFA
Callahan
Staal

Girardi
Lundqvist

Richards and Nash are under contract for the foreseeable future. At 6.667 and 7.8 respectively.

Not to mention the rest of the roster that needs to be filled.

Pray tell where the cap space is coming from?

Gaborik will turn 32 next season. With a long history of injuries, inconsistent effort, and no one knows what he will demand on the market. "Sign for less" may not be an option. Maximizing his value by netting a return IS an option.

Callahan and Staal are re-signing?

Richards and Nash contracts are worse IMO than re-signing Gaborik. Gaborik has the better contract now, and will have the better contract if he re-signs. I cant see his next cap hit being as high. Even Hank. I think both realized they had to cash in before they were in their early 30s and they could re-up on deals where the cap is a million or two less. Especially since most of Gaborik's current deal is his prime years.

When? 5 years ago in Minnesota?
