LA should have about $15 million to eat Doughty's raise, replace Sturm/Handzus/Poni/ and add a piece or two. We could easily have spent the extra cap space we have this year.
Now yes, having Johnson signed is huge, no one knew what he was going to command....
As far as replacing players goes, you run the risk of a fluctuating season when you rely on rookies to replace veterans, yes it has to happen, but most succesful teams do it one-2 at a time, not 5.
