The only thing working against Rask is that the Cap went down this year. Not his fault, but he can probably take a little less to stay in Boston and win, or take a little more to go elsewhere. How does that usually work out for anyone??

I think they settle around 5.5 or 5.75 per year on a long contract, 6 years?

Re-signing Horton would be great but they have a few prospects that look like they will at least ease the pain of letting their first line RW go.
After this season, I'm not optimistic about Caron's future with this team.

He was ineffective and injured early in the season, so he didn't break camp with the team, but even after that he was never able to establish himself enough at the AHL level to warrant a spot on what was a miserable third line.

The Bruins opted to go with a cast-off from Ottawa in Daugavins in the post-season as opposed to a former first round pick in Caron. I don't think the organization has a high view of him right now.

I still think he can be a 4th or maybe 3rd line player in the NHL, but I don't think he has shown the top 6 upside at any level.

I think Spooner will have a spot for next year, but I also think that guys like Knight, Koko, Camara, are going to need a full season at the AHL level before being called up. That's what the Bruins did with Spooner this year, and I think it will pay dividends. Knight's injuries prevented him from getting the seasoning that he really needed this year. I think he starts in the AHL. The other two guys are too green at this point, and definitely need some time in the minors.

I don't think any of those guys are ready to replace what Horton brought to the table. If they do let Horton walk, I'm not sure there is going to be a an in-house answer, and if they don't sign Horton, they won't have the money to sign any of the other top FA wingers. I think Chia is going to have to get creative either in the trade market and bring someone in, or find ways to clear some cap space. It's going to be interesting to see what his plan is.

Wishful thinking. He will get 6M+ per year. More likely around 6.5M for 4/5year.

Anything $8M or below is money well spent.

Quick makes 5.8, Price makes 6.5 (but it's been pointed out by several of our canadian posters that taxes in Canada make that closer to 5.5ish in Boston). I think 5.75 to stay with Boston for several years with their defensive system, and have a shot at the Cup every season has to be a very attractive option.
