Here's what I've got for next season (assuming Kesler's cap hit is 4.5, Raymond's cap hit is 2.5 and the cap stays the same):

Daniel Sedin ($6.100m) / Henrik Sedin ($6.100m) / * Ryan Kesler ($4.500m)
* Mason Raymond ($2.500m) / Mikael Samuelsson ($2.500m) / Alexandre Burrows ($2.000m)
Steve Bernier ($2.000m) / Cody Hodgson ($1.696m) / Michael Grabner ($0.843m)
Darcy Hordichuk ($0.775m) / * Jannik Hansen ($0.750m) / * Alexandre Bolduc ($0.600m)
Rick Rypien ($0.550m)

Kevin Bieksa ($3.750m) / Sami Salo ($3.500m)
Alexander Edler ($3.250m) / Christian Ehrhoff ($3.100m)
* Shane O'Brien ($1.750m) / * Brad Lukowich ($0.700m)
* Aaron Rome ($0.600m)

Roberto Luongo ($5.333m) / * Andrew Raycroft ($0.500m)

ROSTER: 22; PAYROLL: $53.397m; CAP ROOM: $4.253m BONUSES: $0.850m

Because it's the last year of the current CBA (there is an option available for the PA but they likely won't exercise it until after the season begins) I'm going to assume that the bonuses will count against the cap. If that's the case then we've got 3.403 million left to spend on that final defencemen and leave a little wiggle room.

Assuming we move Schneider for a young defencemen on a decent contract (let's say around 1 million dollars) then it likely frees up SOB and his 1.75 million dollar contract which gives us another 750k of cap space to go with the 3.403 we've already got.

So realistically I could see us having around 3.5 million dollars in cap space to add that final top four defencemen that we need.
