I thought I'd take a crack at predicting our 2009-2010 lineup as it relates to the salary cap, assuming no Sundin and no trades or free agent signings for that season. Obviously it's very rough and
a guestimate, intended just to give a rough idea of where we might stand:
and is not a prediction of the actual lines.
Tanguay (5.5) Koivu (5.0) Kovalev (5.5)
Higgins (3.7) Pleks (4.2) S. Kost (.6)
MaxPac (.9) Maxwell (.6) A. Kost (3.3)
Latendresse (1.6) Chips (1.0) Laraque (1.5)
Dagostini (.5) Lapierre (.8)
Marcov (5.8) Komi (4.2)
Hamrlik (5.5) O'Byrne (.6)
Valetenko (.5) Gorges (1.1)
Total Cap Hit = 55.9 million
So we could be under the cap even if there is no increase in the cap for 2009-2010.
With Sundin (assuming he signed on for 2 years at 7.5/year), if we remove Maxwell and insert Sundin, we'd be around 63 million - and would likely need to say goodbye to one of Higgins, Tanguay, Koivu, Kovalev, Pleks or Komi.
