I'm not sure TK should be expecting a raise, he hasn't had a great year and with the cap going down there is potential that 3rd liners, 4th liners and bottom pairing are the guys likely to feel the squeeze IMO. I think he's worth a 3rd/4th depending how he does in the playoffs.

Carolina makes the most sense I think to shop TK to, he had good chemistry with Staal and Carolina are in need of bottom 6ers who can provide some offence.
