It depends on how much Hossa gets. If we sign Avery and let Hossa walk, we have 12 forwards on the roster. I can't imagine that we're not going to carry at least one spare forward. Hossa's 10 goals should not entitle him to a big raise in the eyes of the arbitrator. He may have a cap hit not much higher than Moore.

Even if Hossa walks, we can't spend the entire $7.5 mil on Lundqvist and Avery. We need to leave room for a spare forward, and some wiggle room for later injury call-ups and in case Staal beats out Pock. I think someone is going to be traded.
