They have 39 players under signed contract for next season. Nine RFAs--Zuccarello, McDonagh, Hagelin, Stepan, Sauer, Mashinter, Ferriero, Palmieri and Niemi. The first four are locks to be back. Sauer, I don't know what they do with him. Mashinter and Ferriero may be back. Palmieri? Niemi already left for Finland. So from those nine, you probably end up bringing back six or seven.
Clowe, Hamrlik, Eminger and Gilroy are UFAs. Maybe one or two of them are back. Of the non-roster guys, I count four UFA--Sean Collins, Logan Pyett, Brandon Segal, Mike Vernace. I doubt Sean Collins is back in any capacity. Can you get Pyett, Vernace and Segal on AHL deals? They may be able to land an NHL deal somewhere.
We'll have a couple of openings.
It's just pain.
