We should sticky this...it shows all the players that are on the books for the Bruins in the big league and minors and for all the years we have someone on contract. As you can see we have $8,820,001 in space WITH MURRAY ON THE BOOKS.

You could offer Hossa 8 million and use the Murray buyout money and the leftovers to sign Wideman. These are the actual numbers because we didn't tabulate the bonus money.

I also like the way our top players are spread out over the next couple years! The countdown is on!
Actually, we only have $7M in cap space. He's just not including the bonuses in his 'cap space' figure but they count against the cap from day 1 until the player(s) prove they can no longer attain the bonuses.

For example, Mark Stuart had a bonus in his rookie deal for games played, once he spent enough games in the minors, they could call him up without his bonus counting against the cap.

So the B's true cap space number according to his AAV salaries is $7,055,001.
(And Wideman & Nokia will lower our cap space by another ~ $4M.)
