Exactly ... which is why, even though I'm doing it on my site, I'm hating it - because there's absolutely no way to know exactly what every team's Opening Night roster is going to look like.

That said ...
The Blueshirts are just under $49 million on the $50.3 million season salary cap. Their 23-player roster includes two goaltenders; eight defensemen (Marc Staal, Jason Strudwick and Andrew Hutchinson in, Thomas Pock out); and 13 forwards (Artem Anisimov, Ryan Callahan, Marcel Hossa, Ryan Hollweg and Colton Orr in, Brandon Dubinsky and Nigel Dawes out.)
Pock would have to clear waivers to get down to Hartford ... if he's going, is Girardi the 8th defenseman? Does he really think Pock will clear going down?

And how does he figure that's only $49 million - because picking who [I'm 95% sure] he's picking, it adds up to $51,323,810 - of which $3.1 million is potential bonuses.

No promises this time.
