What he said. Preds don't spend near the cap because they can't afford to. If they could, they'd probably resign everyone.

That said, the most likely players to leave, in order, are:

1. Forsberg
2. Hartnell
3. Kariya
4. Timonen

That's just my opinion though. The market for UFA defenseman is pretty deep this year so Timmo probably doesn't get targeted too heavily by other teams. Hartnell will get a huge contract offer and I'm not convinced Forsberg, or the Preds, really want him back at anything near a FMV deal. Kariya will follow the money, and since I think the Preds will make him their priority, he'll probably get his best offer from them.
