Marc-Andre Flurey ? another few years away yet

within 4 years time you have

maklin 8.5 -12 million
crosby 8.5 -12 million
flurey 5 - 7 million

i guess its possible they could have 29 million rapped up in 3 players ... in a cap world how many can you afford ?
The max on players is not 12 million, is it? And if the player max does go up the cap will correspondingly go up. Long and short of it is, forget the actual dollars, in the end you could potentially tie up about 40% (something like that) of your cap in 3 players if all hit the max. Fleury will not be the problem. Staal might in 8 years or so. And yet what a problem to have. The trade value of any of those players would remain very high, similar to what the Sens did with Heatly. All in all those kind of problems I can like.
