CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $62,400,000; CAP PAYROLL: $62,364,432; BONUSES: $1,700,000
CAP SPACE (22-man roster): $35,568

Some more messing around. Here's what I ended up doing:

Obviously the big thing is signing Bryzgalov to a contract like $5,400,000 per year for 5 years. May be a bit below what he was asking for from Phoenix in terms of cap hit, but it's $2 million more in terms of total money.

Waive Shelley and Leighton, LTIR Lappy, and let go Leino and Zherdev.

Trade Carle for a 1st (someone like Carolina).

Resign O'Donnell for one year at $1,000,000. I've seen Ericsson put in here for a contract like this, but I'm not sure what kind of contract he's looking for. Also resign Nodl for $800,000. It looks like a pay cut, but it's actually a $150,000 raise in guaranteed money. Resign Darroll Powe for $775,000 as well, as that's a bit above his qualifying offer.

Sign Adam Hall for $650,000. It's only a $50,000 raise for him so I'm not sure if he takes it. If not, sign Sestito for around the same.

Bring up Gustafsson and Wellwood, plug them into the lineup, and there's your 22-man roster.
