Everyone on the list there is signed up for the coming season and the running total against the cap is only a mere $35.9 million (roughly).
Scoring shouldn't be too much of an issue for the top three lines. All should be good considerable pool picks when it comes down to it all. On defense, I think you'll see a great jump to the next level for Vlasic. His ice-time was so high last season, that it won't be the learning curve around that this coming season, rather the offensive talent curve will be the one tested. In goal, the race for the back-up job will either be within the club against Dakers or Restricted Free Agent, Dimitri Patzold. There are a few goaltenders out there looking for jobs, so you may see a dip into the Free Agent Pool by the Sharks.
