No it's not. Not by a LONG stretch.

- We could trade Liles(maybe retaining SOME of his salary...)
- We could trade Franson
- We could trade Kulemin
- We could sign Kadri to a 3 million dollar contract, and Franson to a 2.5 million dollar "bridge" contract, and dump Holzer to cover the difference.
- We could buyout someone else, to make room for both Kadri & Franson's new deals.
- We could keep one or two guys down on the Marlies, to help make room for their new deals.
