Trade Drury and Washington's 2nd to Florida for Olesz and both team's buyout each player. Cap hit to the Ranger's is about $375k next year. Florida saves money and gets a pick.

Buyout Wolski with a cap hit of about $465k next year.

Combined, the Rangers need a little less than 1 million of extra cap space to allow for buyout cap hits, but the space saved is worth it.

Trade Christensen for a late round pick or waive him to the minors. Ideally, Florida sees value and wants him instead of the 2nd round pick. But that's a dream. Maybe Colorado needs a winger for a 5th or 6th round pick.

Boogaard retires, you can't take a punch with a concussion problem.

Sign UFAs Brad Richards - 7m, Tomas Fleischmann - 4.5m, Zenon Konopka 1.2m


Brandon Dubinsky ($4.000m) / Brad Richards ($7.000m) / Ryan Callahan ($4.000m)
Tomas Fleischmann ($4.500m) / Derek Stepan ($0.875m) / Marian Gaborik ($7.500m)
Brian Boyle ($2.500m) / Artem Anisimov ($2.200m) / Mats Zuccarello-Aasen ($1.750m) (up for grabs, could be Feds/Kreider/Grachev)
Sean Avery ($1.937m) / Zenon Konopka ($1.200m) / Brandon Prust ($0.800m)
Ruslan Fedotenko ($1.000m)

Marc Staal ($3.975m) / Daniel Girardi ($3.325m)
Ryan McDonagh ($1.300m) / Mike Sauer ($1.550m)
Pavel Valentenko ($1.000m) / Michael Del Zotto ($1.087m)
/ Matt Gilroy ($1.250m)

Henrik Lundqvist ($6.875m) / Martin Biron ($0.875m)

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $63,000,000; CAP PAYROLL: $60,500,000; BONUSES: $1,487,500
CAP SPACE (22-man roster): $2,500,000

2.500m cap space less 840k buyout cap hits = 1.66m Which is enough to sign Prospal towards the end of the season to add veteran depth for a playoff push as well as make a deal.
