I have bought out Pronger and Briere.... I don't think the team will buyout Bryz - for what it's worth.
I would like to keep Gagne but move him to 3rd line with Coots and Read. I'd also like to go after a TRUE sniper. And bring in a 4th line Faceoff machine. With a healthy Mez (if that exists) I think the D can perform...
Also need to sign a backup GK.

(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $54,526,667; BONUSES: $2,800,000
CAP SPACE (
20-man roster): $12,573,333
I like this lineup if they can somehow get a top defenseman so everyone on D moves down a spot. Maybe Streit on a three-year deal.
