Here's a projectable line up with the signings now and how close it is to the $48.3 M cap floor.

I put Lando in the lineup over Hishon, because I think they'll want both to be in the top six if they stay up, and would rather not send Lando back to junior and likely lose him for the year. We'll assume he gets about what Duchene got.

Edit: forgot Gali wasn't signed yet. We'll under cut what he'll get, and put him down for a measily $1 M.

Landeskog - Stastny - Jones
Mueller - Duchene - Hejduk
Galiardi - O'Reilly - Winnik
McLeod - McClement - Yip

Quincey - Johnson
X - Elliott
Hunwick - O'Byrne

Goalie 1
Goalie 2

Scratches - Van Der Gulik, Mauldin, Liffiton

So this would give them $38,968,333 toward the cap and $9,331,667 to spend on two goalies and a top four D.

So theoretcially, the Avs could reach the cap floor with this lineup as it is, and just adding the follwing pieces:

Vokoun - $4.5 M
Smith/Harding - $2 M
Jan Hejda - $2.85 M M

You can of course switch around a few pieces, and move money around a bit, but this shows that the Avs can easily make the cap floor if they do something similar. Even moreso if they sign a guy like Ward or Nichol and add some bigger cap hits while pushing guys like Winnik and Yip down the depth chart.
