capgeek.com will tell you whatever is up to date.
With the cap supposedly raised to $62.2m, all the UFAs gone, Redden on the summer cap, MDZ back up, and Boogaard's (RIP) cap removed, the Rangers have about $5.85m to re-sign RFAs and whoever else they would like to sign. That is with this roster:

FORWARDS
Sean Avery ($1.937m) / Erik Christensen ($0.925m) / Marian Gaborik ($7.500m)
Brandon Dubinsky ($1.850m) / Artem Anisimov ($0.850m) / Ryan Callahan ($2.300m)
Wojtek Wolski ($3.800m) / Derek Stepan ($0.875m) / Mats Zuccarello-Aasen ($1.750m)
Chris Drury ($7.050m) / Brian Boyle ($0.525m) / Brandon Prust ($0.800m)

DEFENSEMEN
Marc Staal ($3.975m) / Daniel Girardi ($3.325m)
Ryan McDonagh ($1.300m) / Mike Sauer ($0.500m)
Wade Redden ($6.500m) / Michael Del Zotto ($1.087m)
Matt Gilroy ($1.750m)

GOALTENDERS
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: $62,200,000; CAP PAYROLL: $56,350,000; BONUSES: $1,487,500
CAP SPACE (21-man roster): $5,850,000
Then re-sign the RFAs, and reduce Gilroy's salary if he is brought back and the Rangers have -$175,000 in cap space (this is with Drury, Wolski and Redden still on the roster).

So somebody will have to go. That could be in the form of a demotion (Christensen, MDZ) or a buyout (Drury, Wolski), a trade, or even Redden breaching his contract, but let's assume that the Rangers do the buyout option.

Chris Drury buyout from CapGeek.com
* 2011-12: $3,716,667
* 2012-13: $1,666,667
Wojtek Wolski buyout from CapGeek.com
* 2011-12: $466,667
* 2012-13: $666,667

$4,183,334

With Redden still on the summer cap, the Rangers would still have just under $6.5 million to fit whoever they want under the cap, they also have 4 roster spots open. Now let's say our dreams come true, and Redden's cap hit is somehow gone. The Rangers would then have 5 roster spots to fill and just under $13 million to spend.
