I wouldn't be surprised to see Staal moved this summer, maybe at the draft, freeing up another $4mil. I think we cut ties with Dupuis as well, and Scuderi is pricing himself out of a reasonable spot in Pittsburgh.

I just mocked up a quick lineup and it came out to $46.635mil with winger spots open on both Crosby and Malkin's wing.

Kunitz (3.75) - Crosby (8.70) - ???
Caputi (.585) - Malkin (8.70) - ???
Cooke (1.20) - Zigomanis (.700) - Kennedy (.600)
Adams (.750) - Talbot (1.05) - Godard (.750)

Spare: Wallace (.500)

Orpik (3.75) - Gonchar (5.00)
Goligoski (1.00) - Eaton (2.00)
Letang (1.25) - Lovejoy (.750)

Fleury (5.00)
Curry (.600)

Leaving quite a bit of money to find 2 wingers. Enough to spend big on one of them, regardless of whether or not the cap goes up another $2mil-$3mil.
Well the cap for 2010-2011 are based off this years numbers, and it's widely speculated that the numbers are down. I don't think it's just a rumor..
