Neither of those guys deserve Lidstrom, Pronger, Chara or Niedermayer money. While Souray has good size and a great shot, he should not get more than $5M or $5.5M per season. They should be able to fit that under the cap. If he wants more, trade him fast! The good news about Souray is, he is only truning 31 this summer and should have a lot of hockey left in him, the bad new is he is not a heck of a lot more than a PP speacialist with his wicked shot (75% of his points on the PP).

If GM cannot sign him at all or chooses to sign and keep him, that will be another huge mistake, since Souray won't be anywere close to the points total of this season and defensively he is a big liability, so in that case the team will be in another Samsonov's situation, only more expensive one.
