You are both Right and wrong
I entirely missed inserting his (Averys) name - but his 1,9 M is actually included in my total sum. I just (whewwww) double checked this twice.
So my numbers are actually correct. Which is good.
But my table was not (ie it did not include Avery though his salary was there)
Thanx for correcting me here.
The total Cap space is still then 657.696 USD if we sign someone as 3rd line center for 2.000.000 USD (I speculated on Peca) and we have the 23 man roster as I showed below (13 forwards, 8 defensemen and 2 goalies). Whoever is put in the final positions is anyones best guess.
But the lines I showed are still possible to attain.
This is a better scenario -
For all Rangers fans
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.
STILL POSSIBLE LINEUP
Prucha - Gomez - Jagr
Straka - Drury - Shannahan
Avery - Peca - Callahan
Hossa - Betts - Orr or Hollweg
Mara - Staal
Tyutin - Girardi
res Pock + Hutchinsson
