They have $47.1M committed in salary if this is true. Plus they still need to fill five (5) places on the club (as far as I know).

Next year, Malkin will take up an $8.7M cap hit. Jordan Staal will also get a nice raise, probably up around the $3M mark. That's almost $12M in salary they will need to add.. and still have those five (5) positions to fill. They will free up approximately $7M in contracts (Sykora, Sydor, and Hill).. but this will in turn, cause them the need to add three (3) more players bringing it to a total of eight (8) players for minimal money.

Lines are not exact.

Malkin - Crosby - Sykora
Staal - Dupuis - Godard
Talbot - Kennedy - ???
??? - ??? - ???

Gonchar - Orpik
Whitney - Sydor
Gill - Eaton
Letang - Scuderi
