And we might have $10 million to go to reach the floor...but you can bet that $6-7 million of that will be reached with Shea Weber's contract alone. Then you have the possibility of resigning the RFA's (Kostitsyn, Spaling, Halischuk, O'Reilly). Even if those guys go open market, we should have the $$$ to sign them (unless someone offers Kostitsyn stupid money).

We're not going to have any problems reaching the cap floor. We'll be gunning for the midpoint, as usual.
