This actually fits cap-wise...

HERE IS A FUNNY SCENARIO THAT WOULD FIELD ONE HECKUVA TEAM THIS YEAR...

FORWARDS
Vinny Prospal ($1.800m - 1 year) / Brad Richards ($7.000m - 5 years) / Marian Gaborik ($7.500m)
Brandon Dubinsky ($3.800m - 4 years) / Artem Anisimov ($1.800m - 2 years) / Ryan Callahan ($3.300m -4 years)
Evgeny Grachev or Carl Hagelin /Kreider?/ (MAX $0.816m) / Derek Stepan ($0.875m) / Jaromir Jagr ($6.000m - 1 year)
Ruslan Fedotenko ($1.200m - 2 years) / Brian Boyle ($1.000m - 2 years) / Brandon Prust ($0.800m)

DEFENSEMEN
Marc Staal ($3.975m) / Daniel Girardi ($3.325m)
Ryan McDonagh ($1.300m) / Anton Babchuk ($1.600m - 2 years)
Michael Del Zotto or Pavel Valentenko (MAX $1.087m) / Mike Sauer ($1.300m - 2 years)

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

BUYOUTS
Drury ($3.716m)
Avery ($0.604m)

TRADES
Wolski (without regular season salary back) at the draft for a prospect/2011 pick to Ottawa
MZA at the draft for Detroit 3rd rounder 2011 - best for him actually
Christ at the draft for Floridas 5th (or 6th) rounder 2011

RETIREMENT/DEMOTION
The Boogeyman

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
SALARY CAP: $62,400,000; CAP PAYROLL: $60,550,000; BONUSES: $800,000
CAP SPACE (20-man roster): $1,850,000

Still space for a 7th D and/or a 13th FW (maybe Mitchell/Newbury/Weise/goon + ev Gilroy/Eminger)
(Grachev, Hagelin, MDZ, Valentenko and ev Kreider are all waiver exempt)
Wait until training camp to "officially" sign Prospal + Jagr after waiving Redden
Voila --- the summer cap is fixed...

2012 DEADLINE DEAL
MDZ (or Mc Ill Wrath if he stagnates) + 2012 conditional 1st + Kundratek/new prospect for BRENT BURNS
Better yet would be to sign him as a UFA but the price will be VERY HIGH if he gets that far... Snag him early!

BTW - the above is most likely never gonna happen - but we could still field something like this the year after:

2012 OFFSEASON DEAL
ANISIMOV/STEPAN + 2012 2nd + 2013 conditional 1st to PITTSBURGH for JORDAN STAAL

2012-2013 SCC NYR LINEUP

FORWARDS
XXX (UFA/trade/Kreider?) – RICHARDS – GABORIK
DUBINSKY – STAAL – CALLAHAN

XXX (Kreider/Hagelin/Grachev) – STEPAN/AAXXX (UFA/Thomas?/Fasth)
XXX (Boyle/Hagelin/Prospect/trade) – BOYLE/LINDBERG – PRUST
GRINDER/PROSPECT/VET (FEDOTENKO?), GOON

DEFENCE*
STAAL – BURNS
McD – GIRARDI

V-TANK/UFA/(MDZ) – SAUER
BABCHUK/VET

*ADD McNASTY ON THE "D" AND THAT IS ONE SOLID HOMEGROWN D-CORP FOR MANY YEARS

GOALIES
HANK
BACKUP

Fill in the 4 XXX:s with the right players and the Cup goes down Broadway in June!
