Ouch of you are a fan of those three teams...

Calgary Flames    8     $2,902,083     $23,216,666
Buffalo Sabres     8     $2,868,125     $22,945,000
Columbus            7     $2,912,687     $20,388,810

"factor in goaltenders into the defensive cost analysis"

Calgary Flames      10     $29,912,499
Buffalo Sabres       10     $29,870,000
Chicago                9     $27,155,128
Edmonton Oilers     10     $25,966,666

Oh Chicago and there goaltender woes. If PC can get the Thomas off the books after the new CBA is finished Bruins are looking good but even without the Cap is managed well...over the past 2 seasons.
