Agreed, particularly because I'm fairly confident we can get bridge contracts out of Schenn and Couturier.

Yeah, Giroux will get a payday, but his cap hit is already 3.75m. Another 3.00-4.00 on top of that isn't going to cripple our ability.

Keeping Schenn and Couturier at under 3.00m each will be the big issue.

Bridge contracts could make it easier to handle as long as we don't throw down for 4 years on Streit. 3 years makes it the perfect length for some 2-year bridge deals.
