Would that fit under the cap? Assume Gabs 6.5 and Nieds 5.5-6
Never, heh. You're roughly 4m - 8m above the cap. Way too many UFAs in there... so for one, we're overpaying, for two, we're never going to sign that many UFAs *there's other teams trying to sign them too.

Besides, where the hell did Salo with his NTC go? Where did Burrows with his new 2m contract go?

Not to mention that despite all that money, the line-up is extremely weak down the middle. It's not even funny. Kesler is better on the wing, Wellwood is at best 3rd liner and Hodgson is making a jump from OHL to NHL and will likely be just about right on the 3rd line.
