Parise's situation
Arnott + Langs money is actually 7.3M$. Add in Hedberg's 1.5M$, Greene's $0.738 and Mair's $0.515 and thats over 10M$. Plus, you figure the cap will go up at least a little bit (apparently by 3M$).

Suter's situation
Suter's cap hit is actually 3.5M$ for the remainder of this year and the next one before hitting UFA. We have Rolston (5M$), White (3M$) and Salvador (3M$) coming off the books at the same time when Suter would be getting his raise, so that leaves 11M$ to take care of Suter and the others.

If it did go down, I wouldn't be worried at all.
Your team is at $49.7 committed for next season with 14 players signed. Let's say Parise at $5mil (probably low) .... now $54.7mil with 15 players signed. Suter at $3.5mil hit .... $58.2mil with 16 players signed. Still no backup goalie, replacement for Langenbrunner or Arnott and maybe $4mil (if the cap increases $3mil) to spend on at least 4 players. The numbers don't support your pipedream fantasy.
