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.
Not to mention, if whoever they draft at #2 plays on the team next year as expected, they'll come with a $3 M+ cap hit after bonuses just like every other top pick the last few years.

People seem to say the same thing every year about how they'll have to do this or that just to get to the floor and it's never a problem. They tend to forget all the things that add up to an overall cap hit.
