Amnesty: Briere and Bryzgalov
Sign as UFA: Streit and Emery
Trade: Meszaros for a pick
Resign: Gagne, Gustafsson, the other notable RFAs.

OUT: $16.2mil + $5mil on LTIR (Pronger) = $21.2mil
IN: $5.25mil + $3.5mil + $2mil + $1mil = $11.75mil
= around $5mil in space for another forward OR to save for 2014-15 new contracts unless they want a forward on a 1year deal ...

Hartnell - Giroux - Voracek
McGinn - B. Schenn - Simmonds
Gagne - Couturier - Read
Rinaldo - Laughton - Talbot
AHL: Akeson, Flanagan, Noebels, Straka, Cousins, Holmstrom, Mathers, Wellwood, etc.

Streit - L. Schenn
Coburn - Timonen
Grossmann - Gustafsson
AHL: Lauridsen, [Bourdon?], Alt, Manning, Syvret, Konan, Eddy, Lamarche

AHL: Heeter, Chubak

There's room for another top-9 forward but that would push McGinn back to the AHL, most likely. a winger on either side would work because Matt Read could play the left side if he needed too BUT I'd rather have a left-winger who can score.
I agree almost 100% with this. Forget the big splash. Have to buy Bryz out.

Variable is that Emery might not be available, but Backstrom might. Options like Halak or Hiller would eat up the cap room, but only for 1 year until we find out if Mason can cut it.
