Yeah, sorry, I think San Jose would match that easily. They have the cap space.
Hmmm. If we can sign Saku Koivu to $2M and put him on the 2nd line... We sign Plekanec to $5M... Replace Gilroy (which I don't want to do) with Sangs to clear another $1M off the cap. Get Volchenkov for $4M instead of $4.2M, and Girardi $2.3M instead of $2.5M

-$2.15M
+$2.40M

Would still leave a small amount of space left, but I'm not so sure we can get Koivu for $2M. I can see Volchenkov for $4M, maybe, because I think people here overvalue him. Brooks Orpik plays almost as good defense, provides a bigger body for better hits, all while putting up better numbers than Volchenkov, and he's being paid $3.75M right now.

I don't know, though. Tomorrow I will commit to wasting my life on obsessively seeing what the Rangers can do.
