Would all those bloated contracts fit under the cap?

That's a ton of money and the team wouldn't be much better.

It would put us at 550k over the cap.

Briere and Drewiske are still in the lineup.

As the main poster didn't mention them as well and didn't list them either.

This also was with Subban at 8mill and Eller at 3.5.

Don't see Eller getting any kind of deal at a 3.5 mil cap hit.

Wayyyy too early to look at UFA's. Most of them will be signed by July 5th plus they are bloated contracts to boot.

Agree, Subban's "bridge deal" was a 2.875m cap hit, If Eller signs something similar 2-3 years no way he gets more than 3m, I see like 2.5M.

Eller is technically on his bridge deal ATM.

I wouldn't be opposed to sign him for a longer term than what Subban got.

How many years to UFA Eller is (after this one). Two years, right.

Expect around 3m if he's signed for more than 2 seasons.

I'd like MB to sign an underrated top6 winger this summer. Vanek, Moulson, Callahan will all get a ton of attention and will likely get overpaid.

I'd go after a guy like Vrbata and play him with Pleks.

It's extremely difficult to find top tier players through free agency. It's best to use free agency to find role players such like most of the guys in the post you quoted.

We have more than enough 3rd and 4th liners at this point though so I wouldn't bother going after Winnik / Seto.

Nikitin is interesting though. 6'3 220lbs smooth skating PMD.

Jesus Christ when will people understand we will not be getting Toffoli for Markov. This is nonsense.

And signing 2 of the most covoted FA this summer. For 6 millions a piece. In your dreams pal.

Habs run after physical top liner. I wish we can drop Gorges somewhere like Winnipeg. Just offer Eller, Gorges, Lekhonen/Fucale for E. Kane. They offer 5M$ for 3 yrs to Girardi then replace Cube and Murray by Mark Stuart.. trade Bourque and Briere

We need an offensive threat up front and two of the top guys would be Vanek or Stastny. Vanek would be a massive addition given our goal scoring struggles but I can't see him signing here. Stastny has shown chemistry internationally with Patches and once Galchenyuk proves he can play centre then we can deal Plekanec/Eller for some help on the wings. Stastny also is solid at both ends and would help us out on faceoffs.

I think a guy like Kulemin would be a nice addition who wouldn't be overly expensive, he'd look nice with Eller on the third line and could step in on the second line at times. Adds size and plays physical, also still young and has shown offensive touch in the past.

I think our D would be fine if we re-sign Markov and hopefully Tinordi or Pateryn are ready to step into the lineup.

We'd add some size and improve offensively and also defensively with a line-up like this... I'm bored and came up with this, flame away

FORWARDS
Max Pacioretty ($4.500m) / Paul Stastny ($7.250m) / Brendan Gallagher ($0.685m)
Alex Galchenyuk ($0.925m) / Tomas Plekanec ($5.000m) / Rene Bourque ($3.333m)
Michael Bournival ($0.660m) / Lars Eller ($2.750m) / Nikolai Kulemin ($2.800m)
Brandon Prust ($2.500m) / Ryan White ($0.735m) / Travis Moen ($1.850m)
Gabriel Dumont ($0.563m) / Dale Weise ($0.788m)
DEFENSEMEN
Andrei Markov ($5.250m) / P.K. Subban ($8.000m)
Alexei Emelin ($4.100m) / Nathan Beaulieu ($0.925m)
Jarred Tinordi ($0.870m) / Josh Gorges ($3.900m)
Davis Drewiske ($0.638m) /
GOALTENDERS
Carey Price ($6.500m)
Peter Budaj ($1.400m)
BUYOUTS
Tomas Kaberle ($0.000m)
Scott Gomez ($0.000m)
Daniel Briere ($1.333m)
------
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(estimations for 2014-15)
SALARY CAP: $71,100,000; CAP PAYROLL: $67,254,167; BONUSES: $3,257,500
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $3,845,833

This is assuming we can trade Desharnais and buy-out Briere assuming he doesn't do anything the rest of the year or in the playoffs.

Giving statsny 7+ is a mistake. I rather use to resign subban. I think the addition of Callahan and girardi will solidify our team. Callahan is 5'11" but he plays bigger and lots of speed. He's a player you can put on the power play penalty kill etc same with girardi who's like 6'2". Both guys can battle and are playoff type grinders lead the way for our young guys like Galchenyuk Gallagherr. Also I like macDonald kid on defense. He 6'0" has speed can eat up 25 mins a game

The only reason both guys are guys go to free agency is because they're asking for $6-7m for 7 years.
