Something for everyone to keep in mind as well, we have some prospects that will also be signed. The list of guys that will be 20 and probably should be signed:
Jonathan Racine (most likely/maybe?)
And not in that list but already signed is Vincent Trocheck. So thats 6 guys right there that we need contract spots for (5 are forwards). We're currently at 48 contracts of the total 50 limit.
I think we may not re-sign every RFA at this point but not sure who wouldnt be retained (maybe let Selleck go but bring him back to SA on a AHL-only deal). On the UFA side, Santorelli, Kovalev, Deveaux & Rallo are definitely gone. Yonkman and Smithson are probably gone too (though Smithson could be back). Theo might end up retiring so he's probably not coming back either. Weiss is 50/50 at this point. His lack of strong play so far is probably hurting his ability to get that $5M/yr contract and could put us back into a position to re-sign him for a more friendly deal. I think we should re-sign Strachan & DGM for sure.
