I hope you're not suggesting Galchenyuk should be our #1 center next year.
Not saying Galchenyuk is 1st line center. I just threw some lines together. He should be 3rd line and keep playing sheltered minutes.

Leddy will take Montadors salary so with the Olesz buyout, they would have about 5 million in cap space and have to sign Emery - 2 million. I don't see them keeping Stalberg or Bickell unless they trade a salary. Hossa has 8 years left at over 5 million per year cap hit so he may be available. Not totally sure we want that hit either but he would be a nice upgrade on Ryder.
