the Hawks aren't doing too bad re cap space - right now (excl. buy outs) they're at $5,876,538. If you assume a buy out of Montador and Olesz that puts them at $11.9m. for 13/14. it would be great to dump bolland - hypothetically if we dumped him at the draft to move up w/ our own 1st round pick (meaning we weren't taking back salary)...that would put us at $15.3.

whether moving bolland like that is plausible or not...the point is that we do have more manoeuvre-ability than people are claiming.

however...i wouldn't even bother doing what Land of Lincoln suggests...I wouldn't re-sign Bickell at all (get a prospect from Rockford to fill in). Emery - we won't be able to re-sign him. He's proven his worth this year and will be able to command a bigger salary elsewhere than we could justifiably pay him. Same w/ Stalberg - I actually like him - but he's going to be able to command a bigger salary as a UFA than i'd want us to pay him.
