so thoughts on lines looking like this...
Horton - Savard - Lucic
Ryder - Bergeron - Satan/Wheeler
Recchi - Krejci - Seguin
Thornton - Sabotka - Campbell/Paille
Chara - Seidenberg
Stuart - Boychuk
Hunwick - Ference
I know the d-pairs have been debated, but i think that would be a solid starting 6 with guys like alexandrov, mcquaid and wozneiwzawhatsit in the minors.
Capwise, that leaves them with a decent amount of room.... I added it up as if Stuart got the same money as Boychuk, and that Satan and Wheeler, and Campbell and Paille would make the same amount. what i got out of all those salaries was 56.504 million locked up against the cap with that being the starting line up. The cap is reportedly set at 59.4 million. That leaves us with about 2.8 million in cap room to work with, with a pretty damn good starting line up...
