The players that are disappearing off the books will create some space and the cap will start to go up in another year as it always has. They won't have Grabo after next season. The old buyouts are done in 13-14 too.
Its doable for the $2.5 million difference between Stastny and resigning Boz, but you have to believe that Stastny can still bring that A game.
Anyone who watched this year's world championship knows he can still bring it.
I think most people are expecting at least 2 of Grabovski, Liles, and Komisarek to be gone next year, so that's quite a bit of cap space to play with.
Perhaps a package of Matt Frattin, Joe Colborne, and Jesse Blacker would be enough to bring Stastny our way.
