Therien, Sekeras, Numminen, Tugnutt and Bure for certain.
The core (Modano, Lehtinen, Zubov, Morrow and Turco) along with the youngsters (Ott, Daley, Miettinen, Kapanen) won't go anywhere, regardless of their contract situation. Turgeon has one more year left, he'll be gone after that. Jason Arnott is a pending UFA but he's way too crucial for the Stars to be let go just like that.
Not many players will leave besides the obvious. Maybe Jon Klemm as well..
The Stars will be around 45 with most their important guys signed..
As for Modano, 200%..
He won't go anywhere. In fact, he's looking for a long-term deal that would finish his career here.
Guys, do you still feel that Modano can fit back into the Stars budget under the proposed cap?? Is a long-term deal possible for him now? I wonder if he's in that unsigned class of players who are going to find themselves looking for employment with a team like Columbus, minnesota or edmonton- good inexpensive teams that are going to have substantial cap room to play with..
It depends on how much of a pay cut Modano's willing to take to stay here. He's probably looking at around $5 million per maximum from the Stars, and that's only if they can cut loose one of Arnott or Turgeon.
