Of course, you're not accounting for salaries that could easily be moved like Frolik.

That being said - while I suspect Leddy stays and hope he does, I wouldn't call it a done deal by any stretch. He's a VERY good player and could fetch a ton at the draft. I could see the Hawks selling him off for a fortune if the contract talks don't go well. It would allow them to keep Stalberg and/or Bickell - and the Hawks might feel Clendening is ready to take over Leddy's role.
