First off, there is inflation and money benchmarks change. Secondly, if the rumors of the cap going up as much as 3 million dollars is true then the rev. sharing should go up as much.

(Logic being both Rev. sharing and the cap are linked to revenues.)

If true, Weber and Suter are paid for, (and most likely all the RFAs).

This is the roster I have built in my mind, if I'm short on the salaries then say so and I'll boost them up:


Matthew Lombardi ($3.500m) / Cal O'Reilly ($1.000m) / Colin Wilson ($1.725m)
Martin Erat ($4.500m) / Marcel Goc ($1.250m) / Sergei Kostitsyn ($0.850m)
J.P. Dumont ($4.000m) / David Legwand ($4.500m) / Patric Hornqvist ($3.083m)
Jerred Smithson ($0.800m) / Nick Spaling ($0.950m) / Jordin Tootoo ($1.250m)

Ryan Suter ($3.500m) / Shea Weber ($6.500m)
Kevin Klein ($1.350m) / Francis Bouillon ($1.350m)
Cody Franson ($0.800m) / Jonathon Blum ($0.941m)
Alexander Sulzer ($0.750m)

Pekka Rinne ($3.400m) /Anders Lindback ($0.875m)

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $62,400,000; CAP PAYROLL: $46,875,000; BONUSES: $1,112,500
CAP SPACE (21-man roster): $15,525,000

That's 21 players and 15.5 million in room for the cap, AKA, the Preds are at the cap floor. In the above the Preds have spent 46.9 million with Weber in the fold at 6.5 million. Preds salaries tend to be consistent with the growth of the cap. I believe the Preds have a 48-49 salary cap with the 3 million it's 51-52 million. Thus with the Above the Preds have 6 million to spend on 2-3 forwards.

(I think)
I think Smithson will be gone. And I also think 1 of Sulzer or Bouillon or Klein to be gone. I expect to see Blum and Josi up
