Still has nothing to do with positional salary allocation. We spent about 51m in actual dollars on player salaries last season. We are set to pay about the same this season. I guess we know what our budget is, right? League probably caps us at 51m. OEL will probably cost at least three million more next season than he has the previous two. Smith at least 1.5m and at least the same for Boedker. That's six million in straight raises. If we need to stay under 51m, that means we need to trade Yandle for an ELC. Stastny is about the furthest thing from that.

Grigorenko, Baertschi, Johansen, RNH, Huberdeau, Granlund, Galchenyuk, Zibanejad, B. Schenn, Couturier, Tarasenko, etc. is what we'd be trying for. Not guys older and more expensive than Yandle himself.
