That doesn't account for replacement of Frolov, Prospal, Fedotenko or Eminger.

Where's the cap going to be next year? If it goes up enough, you could be close to covering Redden's salary without using the summer overage until you begin filling holes left by UFA's.
I could see the cap going up a bit if the player exercise whatever that option is called, one more time. The Canadian dollar is very close to the value of the US dollar again. That helps the cap situation there. I'd say it goes up to around $60 to $61 million for next season, with the 10% summer bump, the team could go up to around $66 million. Still not a good situation to be in. Only having about $4 million in cap space, using the summer cap bump, with the RFA re-signings, current payroll, and Reddens salary.

That also doesn't include the pro-rated one way contracts for MZA, Weise, and other players that have come up (or will come up) over the coarse of the rest of the season.
