yeah, gagne is at 4.5 give or take...

at any cost we need to sign gagne, pitkanen, niitymaki...as long as johnsson stays under 3, he is a def; rico around 2, hold on to ruzicka but the other minors can go

Umberger and Radio we'll hold onto...plus we'll lose the salaries of brash, therien, and savage...overall i think the offseason free agency will be kind to us

That's on a two-way contract and he's done nothing to merit 1 million. (IMO)

Gagne will get more than 4 million. Other than that the list looks good to me. Good job.

D is going to be in high demand next year. Expect a huge raise for Joni, and Johnsson and Rico will probably get paid the same amount.

Four million, long term seems about right. His entire career he's done what's best for the franchise and never spoke out once about getting a bum deal. Four million five year deal would be a pretty straight deal if you ask me.

yeah thats what i was thinking cause he seems like a good guy and he took the 2 mil last year while brash was making 1.8 mil so id say his starting offer is around 3.5 or 4 this year and hopefully clarke locks him down for 5 years.

I could see Desjardins back at $1.5 mil max, Johnsson COULD go, if the price tag is too high. Gagne I think would be $4 mil long term. Nitty between $1.5-2 mil. Pitkanen $2.5-3 mil for a 2-3 year deal, and then he starts making the huge #1 d-man bucks on the next deal after that. Umberger and Radio both 800K-1 mil. If we trade for a winger and a d-man, we'd probably attempt to sign one or both of them if they are UFAs, depending on how they work out.

I'm not sure on what Niitty will make. He hasn't done anything to to show that he's better than what Esche was last year, and he was resigned 1.2 I think? May be wrong. I know he won't get two but even 1.5 seems a little high.

This is assuming Nitty is the clear-cut #1 going into next season, which I guess is not a lock. However, young potential #1 goaltenders will be at a premium under the cap, just like young top defensemen. There just aren't that many of them.

I think Johnsson is a big maybe. He was having a pretty bad year prior to getting hurt and now nobody knows when he'll be back. His whole situation is sounding more and more like Primeau to me.

A healthy KJ is worth the high side of 2 million IMO, but I would not give him a contract any time soon - pending his head that is...

Gagne-4 mil
Niitty-1 mil
Pitkanen-2-2.5
RJ-1

$7 million tied up in Johnsson and Rathje? I hope not.

I don't see how they can justifying giving Kim less then 3.5 based on the last off-season and the guys who signed. He's younger then any of the guys who signed last off-season at the number and he's better than at least most of them. Aucoin got 4 mil, Zhitnik 3.5, Rathje 3.5, Rafalski-4.6(?, is that what he got, I prefer Kim to him), etc... A healthy Johnsson is better then any of these guys, imo. The only thing that could drive down his value would be his health this season. I think people forget how good Kim is because he battled injuries so much this season, he played like a top 15 defenseman the 2 years prior to this one (seasons). Getting Johnsson for less then 3.5 would be a bargain.
