I don't think Avs will have any trouble reaching the cap floor. If we want a good goalie, I think we better hope the cap floor is $46M-$47M. I got to $43.5M without a goalie just by re-signing UFAs/RFAs. No adding of our #2 pick since we don't know who it is or how ready he will be. Assuming Hishon/Elliot/Barrie/Chouinard/Olver start in LEM.

My guesses for new cap hits

Fleischmann: $3.3M
Jones: $2.25M
Galiardi: $1.25M
O'Byrne: $2M
Wilson: $900K
B.Elliot: $1M
Porter: $800k


Peter Mueller ($2.000m) / Paul Stastny ($6.600m) / David Jones ($2.250m)
Tomas Fleischmann ($3.300m) / Matt Duchene ($3.200m) / Milan Hejduk ($3.000m)
T.J. Galiardi ($1.250m) / Ryan O'Reilly ($0.900m) / Daniel Winnik ($0.950m)
Cody McLeod ($1.033m) / Jay McClement ($1.450m) / Brandon Yip ($0.725m)
Kevin Porter ($0.800m) / Philippe Dupuis ($0.500m)

John-Michael Liles ($4.200m) / Ryan O'Byrne ($2.000m)
Kyle Quincey ($3.125m) / Erik Johnson ($2.600m)
Ryan Wilson ($0.900m) / Jonas Holos ($0.785m)

Brian Elliott ($1.000m)

BUYOUTS: Tom Preissing ($0.916m)

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $59,400,000; CAP PAYROLL: $43,485,000; BONUSES: $2,860,000
CAP SPACE (21-man roster): $15,915,000

I am starting to get a bit scared we will go into next season with a weak starter.
