Bertuzzi(~1.75) - Zetterberg(6.083) - Filppula(3)
Hudler(2.875) - Helm(~1) - Cleary(2.8)
Eaves(~1) - Abdelkader(~1) - Miller(~1)
Lidstrom(~5.5) - Rafalski(6)
Kronwall(3) - Stuart(3.75)
Lilja(~1.25) - Ericsson(.9)
-(~) indicates a conservative estimate as to their new salary
-Some salaries were slightly rounded
-Total Cap: $57.411M
-Although we don't know exactly where the cap will be next season some of projected salaries were conservative estimates (a little high, i.e. $1M for Eaves) so the Cap Hit could possibly come down. Even Lidstrom may in fact take less.
I think Eaves, Abdelkader, Miller, and Draper split time and get regular playing time as injuries occur throughout the course of the season and would all play a minimum of 50 games.
Ericsson and Kindl also split time as well as the 6th defenseman as a good way to ease Kindl into the rotation. I think the Wings learned their lesson with expecting too much from a rookie defensmen this season with Ericsson and full time duty. With injuries they'll both also get minimum of 50 games.
This would mean that since Ritola is out of minor league options he would most likely be out of the organization but considering the situation I wouldn't be too upset.
Thoughts on the roster? Like? Dislike? Changes? Etc
