Offer-sheet targets? The New York Rangers get mentioned a lot because they're in a tight cap spot, but they're well-positioned for the future with just four players under contract after 2013-14. Some teams also believe it's silly to target a revenue powerhouse like New York.
I'm not as certain about Briere because he wasn't as front and centre at the draft, but guesstimates on Lecavalier's next contract are around the five-year, $25-million mark. That said, there are a couple of executives who said they wouldn't be surprised if a team asks to bump that up to seven years with the last two at lower salaries to lessen the cap hit. It's also expected that Lecavalier will ask for no-move or no-trade protection.
