I'm not really sure what I missed.

Once Leighton comes back, we will of course be over the cap, but our team, that happens to be over the cap, will have the following active players on it:

vanRiemsdyk - Richards - Nodl
Hartnell - Briere - Leino
Zherdev - Giroux - Carter
Powe - Betts - Shelley
Carcillo - Laperriere

Pronger - Carle
Timonen - Coburn
Meszaros - O'Donnell
Bartulis - Walker


Bold are the players that are unnecessary to the roster we ice every game (+ Shelley instead of Carcillo even though I'd rather they be switched).

Those 5 players take up $6.09m in cap space.

We LTIR (Lappy)/waive/drop/trade/whatever pretty much any one of them but Bartulis, we're back under the cap projection correct?

In fact, let's get rid of all 4 but Bartulis.

Hartnell (4.20) - Briere (6.50) - Leino (0.80)
vanRiemsdyk (1.65) - Richards (5.75) - Nodl (0.85)
Zherdev (2.00) - Giroux (0.82) - Carter (5.00)
Powe (0.73) - Betts (0.70) - Shelley (1.10)

Pronger (4.92) - Carle (3.44)
Timonen (6.33) - Coburn (3.20)
Meszaros (4.00) - O'Donnell (1.30)
Bartulis (0.60)

Bobrovsky (1.75)
Boucher (0.93)

TOTAL: 55.97 with a full roster.
CAP: 59.40
SPACE: 3.43

We are extremely flexible. We have depth, but it's expendable depth. We have plenty of options. Hell, we can go out and get a ton of people with 3.43m, and possibly even dump some of these expendable pieces in the process.

I fail to see an issue outside of the overdramatics of the Holmgren-hating faction.
