Kaspar is traded or assigned to Hartford
That Peca is signed for 2 M
That Marc Staal makes the roster (if it is meant - necessary - to be a 23 man roster)
8 defensemen are on the roster - not 14 forwards
Would this 23 man lineup not be possible - at least capspace wise?
Total less Bonuses
Remaining less Bonuses
*Shanahan's contract contains an additional $2.8 mil in performance bonuses.
**Girardi's contract contains $200k in performance bonuses.
All performance bonuses count against the cap this year. A team can exceed the salary cap by $3.77 mil (7.5% of the cap) to pay these performance bonuses, but any excess will be dead cap space for the 08-09 season.
Other Notable Contracts (not counted towards the above total):
*Montoya's contract contains $850k in performance bonuses.

By taking Montoya up to The Rangers halfway through the year - he would then ? not be awarded bonuses and will lessen the cap hit by then replacing Valiquette.
Any injuries on the squad would be replaced by young Wolfpackers - lessening cap hit then and there
Good depth on this squad. Replace Hutchinsson with Strudwick. Really does not matter imo.
If some regular player against expectations underachieves throughout season - they can be dealt at the deadline for whatever is deamt necessary then.
The squad could be 22 man as well.
And signing Peca is an option that is a bit risky injurywise - but adds exprience and grit for a real run
Prucha - Gomez - Jagr
Straka - Drury - Shannahan
Avery - Peca - Callahan
Hossa - Betts - Orr or Hollweg
Mara - Staal
Tyutin - Girardi
res Pock + Hutchinsson
Looks good - unless Henrik goes down...
