Plenty. 40-50% of your cap space will be with your top 5-6 players. That is how you build a team in the cap era. You can't be afraid to pay your core top dollar.
Kovalchuk, Kopitar, Doughty, Bernier/Quick, Brown and Johnson will be the core. They should make the most money. If Simmonds continues to grow, then he can replace Brown.
That is why you have to continue to draft well so that you have low cost players available to fill the roster. Moller, Hickey, Loktinov, Schenn, Clifford, etc. That is the key to building long term success.
