that is thier forward core as they stand now after you take the UFA out of it. 12 guys making 4 million or more. Lu plus Ballard will give them some breathing room, but not enough to make real imporvements. I would buy out Booth as well as Ballard.
I think that Ballard(4.5) and Luongo are for sure gone this summer. They've got a few guys on ELCs that come up...Niklas Jensen at F and Frankie Corrado on D.

If need be, they can lose Booth and be okay.
