I think the cap space for next summer is going to be ~$35M. Which sounds like a ton but if you factor in all of the raises due to the RFAs, its obviously not as significant.

I do agree with the assessment made above on Backes as to his fit with FLA(hell he'd fit with any team in the NHL) but if he was going to get that amount and term(3.25/4 years), I believe Doug Armstrong would've already have him signed/sealed/delivered.
