Well, this is good news for Wings fans. I was afraid that the cap would be about the same as last year and they would have to re-sign those players with only $10M. Since Hasek has said that he will only play for Detroit, I'm not very worried about him. He should sign soon for about $2-2.5M.
This leaves about $14M for Schneider, Markov, and Bertuzzi, plus anyone else they want to bring in. Schneider is going to be the most difficult and will probably cost them about $5M. The fun begins tomorrow!
