Here are my projected line combos with cap hit:

EDIT: Sykora is not resigned and Kennedy takes his place. Dupuis is traded for a pick/prospect and Caputi takes his place. Gonchar signed to a 6 year deal 5 - 4 - 4 - 3 - 1.5 - 1. Lovejoy takes over Scuderi who leaves via free agency.

Forward Lines
Kunitz (3.73) - Crosby (8.7) - Kotalik (2.1)
Cammalleri (4.5) - Malkin (8.7) - Kennedy (.73)
Caputi (.83) - Staal (4) - Cooke (1.2) then Talbot (1.05)
Adams (.6) - Talbot (1.05) then Zigomanis(.7) - Goddard (.75)

Defense
Gonchar (5 then 3.08) - Eaton (2 then 1.25)
Letang (.84 then 2.5) - Orpik (3.75)
Goligoski (1) - Lovejoy (.5)

Goalies
Fleury (5) - Curry (.75)

Spares
Zigomanis (.7) (2009-10 only)

Cap Hit
2009-2010 = 56.42
2010-2011 = 54.21
People are predicting it to dip to 55 million this year, and then 50 million next year. Saying it will dip to 55 million next year is being extremely optimistic. Also you're being really optimistic about Letang and Goligoski's cap numbers.
