Say the cap is anywhere from 41 to 43 million The wings are left just BARELY over the cap and then we're only a little over the cap and we can be back under it by getting rid of a Dandeneault or Wooley.
Operating under a cap won't hurt the wings nearly as much as you think it would.
And Datsyuk is unsigned. And Zetterberg is unsigned. And the wings will likely have to find a goalie. And I doubt that the 24% rollback will still be on the table.

I think the wings will do fine by Manny Legace.

Legace and Macdonald will do just fine holding the fort until James Howard comes along, although I think that the wings will try to resign Cujo or another veteran starter to a low(er) salary and trade Legace to a team in need of a goaltender.
I hate to say it but he's one of our top tradeable assets on Detroit due to his salary.

And signing Datsyuk and Zetterberg won't be as hard as you think, Dulzhok. I can almost guarentee that Z gets around 2.5 in the first year of his new contract once the new CBA is pounded out, and Datsyuk maybe a little above 3, maybe a little lower depending on scoring bonuses.

Oh, and if the players try taking the 24% salary rollback off the table, expect the owners to walk away from negotiations again.

I don't think Niedermeyer is a free agent when this strike is finally settled and so he should be back for at least one more year and I'd be shocked if Stevens did indeed retire, the man's a warrior and one who won't be satisfied going out the way he did. So they ALL should be back, sorry man!

BTW, while Parise is a prospect as you say, if there was a season there was no doubt that he would have been with the big club, not Albany, so I think that's why DownfromNJ listed him as a regular center.

The Montreal Canadiens should be far from being in this thread, come on boys. Koivu/Ribeiro/Bonk is far from teams like Detroit. Detroit at C is just SICK SICK SICK, it's out of this world.
