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.
That's what I've heard as well ... would you go after Ballard in FA (3 mil per for 5 years) ? ... Would you also go after David Clarkson ? ... I love the way dude plays ... I'd give him a 6 year deal (ends at age 35 for around 5 per)
