You've also got 12 million locked up in Redden and Roszival and another 7 million in Lundqvist. This leaves you with all of 15-20 million to fill out 2-3 spots in your top 6, 5 spots in your bottom 6 and 2 D-men..
Never really thought about it in that manner - and my god does it paint just a brutally bad picture for the Rangers immediate futures. $37M tied up in your top 6 players, and there's exactly one difference maker (Lundquist)! Add in that 4 of the those contracts run at least 3 more years, and it's just crazy bad.
