Here are my projected line combos with cap hits:

Forward Lines
Kunitz (3.73) - Crosby (8.7) - Kotalik (2.1)
Cammalleri (4.5) - Malkin (8.7) - Sykora (2)
Dupius (1.4) - Staal (4) - Kennedy (.73)
Cooke (1.2) then Adams (.6) - Talbot (1.05) - Goddard (.75)

Defense
Gonchar (5 then 4) - Scuderi (.9)
Letang (.84 then 2.5) - Orpik (3.75)
Goligoski (1) - Eaton (2 then 1.25)

Goalies
Fleury (5) - Curry (.75)

Spares
Adams (.6) (2009-10 only)
Zigomanis (.7)
Lovejoy (.5)

Cap Hit
2009-2010 = 60.39/62M
2010-2011 = 59.93/60M
Beyond the cap hits, some of those numbers aren't realistic. The most glaring is that Scuderi is going to get much more than .9 from next season. If we can keep him (which I am not even sure we will), it will cost about $2 mill in my estimation. Sykora at $2 mill also may or may not happen.
