Redden's contract will be greater than that 10% bump, so effectively, the Rangers true cap is less than maximum salary cap number until the end of training camp.
We have 15 players signed for next season and 15 million in cap space. It might be an issue with trying to sign RFA's over the summer, it wouldn't be an issue with reference to Souray's salary. And, if the guy is halfway decent, it's 16 players signed and 12.3 in cap space.
