Thoughts on where the Rangers may spend their money?

Right now they would have about 17.1 million in cap space going into next season with the following players under contract:

_______-Christensen-Gaborik
_______-_________-________
Avery-Stepan-Grachev
Prust-______-Boogaard

Staal-Girardi
MDZ-Rozsival
_____-______

Hank
Biron


RFA's:
Dubinsky
Callahan
Anisimov
Kennedy
Gilroy
Sauer
Boyle

If the cap increases by 3.5 million, they will have over 20 million dollars to spend going into next season before they re-sign their RFA's. I would guess that those players will not collectively make 20+ million dollars AND if Rozsival is moved in the offseason you can add 5 million to that number.

Lots to think about IF this report is true.
You forgot Drury in your lineup.
