Jeff schultz or Mike Knuble will be gone because of Hamrlik and Ward. and i think Schultz has a better chance of getting traded.
Who's gonna want him though? From what I've heard he's a pylon and he's making 2.75Mil a year...
And even if they did get rid of Schultz, they're only about 800-900k under the cap, and this isnt counting a resigned Alzner, who will probably get somewhere around 2Mil. They have enough offensive depth to move one of Knuble/Fehr, but I do think its more likely Fehr is moved than Knuble(I think he wore the A for them last year?)
I like the idea of Dury on the Kings for cheap with the risk of injury to Williams or Gagne high He could move up and take over a top 6 postion if hes healthy at the same time they go down. I also like the experience he brings. Go get him Dean
I would sign O'Sullivan to a 2 way contract and keep him in Mancheaster to start the season. With the real possiblity of injury to Gagne and Williams it maybe a good idea to have some experince waiting in the wings so to speak. This way he would earn his call up by playing well in manchester or his outright release if he plays bad.
Drury better be thoroughly tested and pass a physical exam before the Kings entertain the thought of offering him a contract. Drury has regressed dramatically since he signed with the Rangers, and one goal in 24 games last season tells me that he doesn't have much left to offer.
