Lets go Chia...get this extension done!
was looking at how the cap situation shapes up for next year and we have just over 11 mill to get rask signed and a first line winger, a third line winger, a bottom pair dman, a backup goalie and 2-3 reserves..

rask is going to be getting over 5 mill a year and minimum salary is going to be over 4 mill for the other spots leaving us right around 2 mill to get Horton or some other first line guy signed.

theres no chance I see Horton coming back for 2 mill.

Right now the most logical changes I see happening incluce signing soderberg to take hortons place... promoting spooner up to join the third line {or maybe spooner plays in hortons spot?... let horton/ference walk cause there just isnt the cap room necessary to bring them back

a very possible lineup that we end up dealing with...

Seguin/Bergeron/Marchand {these guys are our true number 1 line already}
Soderberg/Krecji/Lucic {obviously a question mark here}
Peverly/Spooner/Kelly {or play Kelly in the middle}
Thornton/Campbell/Paille {if it aint broke no need to fix it}
Caron/Vet signing {or some other kid maybe outplays Caron for 13th forward}

Hamilton/Chara {another year of adding muscel for Hamilton should do wonders}
Boychuck/Seidenberg {Boychuck is always the guy I wonder gets moved for cap?}
McQuaid/Krug {or whatever kid wins the spot at camp}
vet signing {always some vet bouncing around that can be had on the cheap}

Rask {give him same contract Johnathon Quick got maybe?}
Khubodin {or whoever best option is we can get for a million dollars}

This lineup even with its couple of question marks eats up all the 64 million cap number as is. If we want Horton back then someone else is going to need to go to make the room.
