Hendry is the next to go of those folks, but I wouldn't be surprised if he stuck around. Bickell is too big, and has too good of a wrister to get rid of at his price. Bolland and Sharp I won't even bother responding to. Jelly is here at least until there is another stay at home shot blocker that deserves top 4 minutes to take his place.
Toews will be around until he's a special assistant to the GM. Keith is a close second, his age is the only factor.

The sh-- apple doesn't fall far from the sh-- tree.
i know the hawks have probably the lowest chance to sign stamkos,
It would'nt hurt to just give an offer/offer sheet, because you never know what could happen
god what a team we would have if Stamkos came here...
Wish Stamkos was possible, just isn't in the cards realistically
Time for predictions....
We most likely give Campoli and Frolik $2mil and 1.75mil, Stalberg for $1mil leaving roughly $9.25 mil in cap space. Given Bowman wants to keep at least 3-4 mil for the deadline, that leaves 5-6mil to spend on fillers.
Sopel would sign with us for a pair of socks but we'll most likely give him 500k according to JR, therefore d-men are done. Add Madden for $1mil and Eager for $2mil and resign Johnson for $1mil. Or they buyout Olesz and go after someone like Talbot/Cole/Ericsson/Dubinsky instead of Johnson with the extra money. Either way these moves would fit our team well, add gritty/experienced players, all while keeping $4mil+ for the deadline.
