Also overpaying for one vet is fine, overpaying for several is a problem. 6 for callahan, 8,5 for Lundquist, 5,5 for Girardi, 2,5 for Boyle, 2,3 for Strålman, 4 for Brassard, Zuccarello and both Moores for 1,5. Then there's Staal, Stepan, Hagelin next year. We could run into some problems, even if they buy out Richards.

One of the more expensive vets might have to go.
Agreed. But 2.3 would not be overpaying for Stralman. Boyle shouldn't and likely won't get 2.5 and if he does, bye.

I mean you have to think realistically about these kinds of things. Who's worth what on an individual basis. You can't lump players together and say well if Callahans worth 6, we have to give Brassard 4.

Also @ pastafazul, players should not be playing with injuries at the beginning of the season. It jeapordizes them down the stretch and in the playoffs, when they will be most needed. Especially since the guy couldnt even hold a stick. Stop spewing nonsense and get a calm head.
