Sooo... they have a core of very good players, and they are going to use developed talent and role players to build the team. Not bad for the next 5 years to have a team built where the core is 25 and under - and (as with all young talent) - should progress each year to their mid - to late 20's.

I know, that's just a stupid way to build a team.
actually gonchar is still on the books for 2 more years, but hey dont let facts get in the way of your arguement. altho id be happy if he left, your team has sure sucked ass without him, moreso then when cindy was out.

contracts expiring before 09/10
Satan 3.5
Boucher 2.5
Sykora 2.5
Fedotenko 2.25
Gill 2.075
Zigomanis 0.65
TOTAL 13.475

contracts extended for 09/10
Malkin 8.70
Staal 4.0
Talbot 1.050
TOTAL 13.75

so next year when they lose 5 more players and still occupy the same cap spot you dont see a problem ? the cap is staying still at best and going lower at worst.
