Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Tomas Holmstrom ($1.875m)
Johan Franzen ($3.954m) / Valtteri Filppula ($3.000m) / Todd Bertuzzi ($1.937m)
Jiri Hudler ($2.875m) / Mike Modano ($1.200m) / Daniel Cleary ($2.800m)
Justin Abdelkader ($1.000m) / Darren Helm ($0.750m) / Patrick Eaves ($0.750m)
Drew Miller ($0.650m) / Kris Draper ($1.583m) / Mattias Ritola ($0.516m)

Nicklas Lidstrom ($6.200m) / Brian Rafalski ($6.000m)
Brad Stuart ($3.750m) / Niklas Kronwall ($3.000m)
Jonathan Ericsson ($0.900m) / Jakub Kindl ($0.883m)
Derek Meech ($0.500m)

Chris Osgood ($1.416m) /Jimmy Howard ($0.716m)


CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (compiled using the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $59,400,000
CAP PAYROLL: $59,092,045
CAP SPACE (24-man roster): $307,955

Abdelkader currently makes $850,000. Helm currently makes $599,444. I penciled in the $1 million and $750,000 figures just as a rough estimate, as well as Modano's $1.2 million figure.

As you can see, this puts us one man over the 23-roster limit, but there seems to be enough cap space to keep them all. Of course, if Holland wants an 8th defenseman, that changes things a bit.
With many on this roster gaining another year of experience from last year this line up is right up there with the top 5 teams going into the season. But the DRW can NOT have an injury filled year like last year.
