Ference, Boychuk and Redden have a combined cap hit of $6.6 million. Yandle is at $5.25 million and Carlson is at $3.9 million.
McQuaid, Hamilton, Bartkowski, and Krug have a combined cap hit of $5.35 million so they are good value.
Seidenberg - Hamilton
Bartkowski - McQuaid
Chara - Hamilton
Bartkowski - McQuaid
As it stands the B's are about $6.5 mil under the cap for next year according to capgeek. They still have the Savard LTIR and they pretty much only NEED to sign Rask, but he is an RFA so that could be done relatively cheap. If you want to bolster D through UFA:
Gonchar, Sergei » D OTT 39 $5,500,000 2013 (UFA)
Hainsey, Ron » D WIN 32 $4,500,000 2013 (UFA)
Streit, Mark » D NYI 35 $4,100,000 2013 (UFA)
Regehr, Robyn » D LAK 33 $4,020,000 2013 (UFA)
Zidlicky, Marek » D NJD 36 $4,000,000 2013 (UFA)
Whitney, Ryan » D EDM 30 $4,000,000 2013 (UFA)
Hamrlik, Roman » D NYR 39 $3,500,000 2013 (UFA)
Scuderi, Rob » D LAK 34 $3,400,000 2013 (UFA)
Leopold, Jordan » D STL 32 $3,000,000 2013 (UFA)
Lydman, Toni » D ANA 35 $3,000,000 2013 (UFA)
I don't think they can acquire either Yandle or Carlson because they no longer have a 1st to deal this year and I think it would probably take that + (obviously) to get them. I don't think either team out take a 2014 1st for them. That would also seriously limit this team going forward. Carlson is under control until 2018 so I doubt he will be on the block. Yandle is probably the best option and most available with the Yotes, but it is a $5.25 mil cap hit and it's going to take serious resources to get him. Just doesn't sound like a good match right now. Chia handcuffed himself when it comes to making a big off season trade with the Jagr deal.
