as mentioned its not simply as easy as "lang, dandenault, bouilion and tanguay make x number of dollars" when it comes to acquiring lecavalier as opposed to who replaces those guys spots in the lineup and how much do they make PLUS whoever we have to replace from the lineup of guys who are dealt for lecavalier, ie. if the supposedly proposed trade of plek, higgins, gorges/o'byrne + prospects (subban?) then who takes the spots of those guys (unless someones coming back with lecavalier like paul ranger as mentioned somewhere).. in that case ranger would replace gorges (if he is included even) fine.. lecavalier takes lang's spot yes (relatively speaking), then the wingers lost would be tanguay and higgins being replaced by pacioretty and d'agostini (im assuming at least) but we're still "losing" 2 defencemen that have to be replaced by someone (who ideally would have to make the league minimum or be on their entry level deals)
all in all, i'd say gorges would have to stay given all that of that (so ranger would replace one of dandy or bouillion) which would make the whole thing more palatable.
finally, those figures that you mention all work based on the current cap and not on one that is projected to decrease
