Hate to break it to you folks, but Heinen isn't that good and he's very replaceable given the forward depth we have. If we can get rid of backes, we'll have 44M of cap space for next season. Krug could get 8, Debrusk takes a three year deal at around 4, Chara would be 2m or less, Halak approximately the same as he has been at 2.75, Coyle for around 4.5, Kreider for 7, which adds up to about 28.5M. Leaving 15.5 Million dollars for Gryz, Bjork, Toffoli (if he fits in) and the 4th line guys. This would be an outstanding situation. Heinen isn't much of an upgrade over Kuhlman, Bjork, Ritchie, and we have studnicka in the pipeline.
