Stalberg and Ferance are the two I think could be had at fair prices. If we find a team to take SK's contract we can manage both easily. I can see Stalberg getting 3.5m a year for 3-5 years and Ferance can be had for around 4m for 3 years.
Chicago won't be able to keep Stalberg at that figure for sure. If he takes less than 2m a year they may be able to manage it. I don't see that happening.
Boston has to sign Rask and after that they will not be able to keep Ferance and Horton so both should be on the open market.
The team would look something like this.
Smith/Barkov/Beck or Forsberg
Bartley/Blum or Ellis
Bench: Butler/Gill/Yip or Halischuk
I wouldn't mind watching that team next season.
