We are currently projected to have $1,097,761 cap space at year end. We know Prospal's 1.4 mil bonuses has been earned, so yes, barring some other cap saving move, we will be deferring at least 300k to next year.

It is unknown whether the other bonuses will be earned. If they are, then we will be deferring even more. The following players may or may not earn bonuses:

MZA $850,000
McD $425,000
Grachev $262,500
MDZ $212,500
Stepan $162,500
Weise $80,000

I seriously doubt either Grachev or Weise will earn their bonuses. And I would bet that Stepan will earn his. The others, who knows. Maybe they have to play 70+ games or be on the roster for a certain number of days.

I'm guessing that since no money was sent back in the McCabe deal, that they aren't worried about it, and already know which bonuses will and won't be earned.
