Would this 23 man lineup not be possible - at least capspace wise?

*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):

Montoya1.834*
Korpikoski1.018
Anisimov0.85
Bourret0.85

Strudwick 0.5

*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

Malik- Roszival
Mara - Staal
Tyutin - Girardi

res Pock + Hutchinsson

The King
Valiquette

Looks good - unless Henrik goes down...

Thoughts?
You don't have Avery in your calculations. Put in his 1.9 and you're over the max we can spend.
