Yakupov is going nowhere.

Hemsky is injury prone and has given our a team a ton of problems on the PP in the past.

Yakupov isn't getting his raise for a while, but if we re-up Hemsky we will have significant cap problems. We've got Hopkins' 6M kicking in, we've gotta resign Petry and Justin Schultz and we're probably going to need to go out and sign another good 3rd line forward.

Doesn't sound like a lot... but who knows. Maybe we'll also have to find a replacement for Dubby while leaving enough space for whatever raise Yakupov is going to get a few years down the line. That's a lot of money to think about.
