Yeah, I doubt anyone's getting Drouin now.
As far as guys like Eriksson and Loooosik costing too much, that is certainly a very real problem. That said, Dorion will want to "make a splash", and we could see a guy or two shipped away (i.e. ZBad/Hoffman/Ryan) in order to free up some salary money. Also, Wiercioch, Phillips, and maybe Chiasson are coming off the books. The only free agent we have to resign of any consequence is Ceci (and Hoffman if we go that route). So there's a bunch of variables here, but if Ottawa *wants* to make a play for a big name FA, there are relatively straight forward ways to come up with the cash.
