I see no reason why Demers wouldn't take a qualifying offer of 1.4 - while we all know his potential he has done little to deserve a bigger raise. Same goes for the other RFAs (Sheppard, Galiardi, Desjardins) the lone exception in my mind is Wingels - and even then it would be a very modest raise.

Assuming all the RFAs are signed to qualifying offers it leaves the DW with about 5.5 mil to sign a 3C and a second line center.

Also with the cap dropping significantly I could see the going rate for UFAs dropping a bit. One player I would target is V. Stalberg as he could be an affordable winger that could give the team more speed and possibly with the development of his brother get a family connection going.

Also of note is that Greiss is an UFA after this season - I can't see him re-signing at the same or similar contract and probably the Sharks are going to have to promote one of the AHL guys to take his place.
