Fair enough...

What about:

Scott Hartnell ($4.200m) / Daniel Briere ($6.500m) / Jaromir Jagr ($3.300m)
James Van Riemsdyk ($1.654m) / Claude Giroux ($3.750m) / Jakub Voracek ($2.250m)
UFA ($???) / Sean Couturier ($1.654m) / Wayne Simmonds ($1.500m)
Maxime Talbot ($1.800m) / Blair Betts ($0.700m) / Andreas Nodl ($0.845m)
Jody Shelley ($1.100m) / Tom Sestito ($0.550m)

Kimmo Timonen ($6.333m) / Chris Pronger ($4.921m)
Braydon Coburn ($3.200m) / Matt Carle ($3.437m)
UFA ($???) / UFA ($???)
Andreas Lilja ($0.737m)

Ilya Bryzgalov ($5.666m) / Sergei Bobrovsky ($1.750m)

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $55,849,761; BONUSES: $2,550,000
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $8,450,239

I give you almost $8.5m (more if you don't take 23 men, lose Shelly or use a different 7th D) in cap space and have traded Schenn and Meszaros for whatever you want, reckon you can plug all those gaps on free agency (personally Hannan and Babchuk on D and whoever on 3rd) for under that cap with (relative) ease... tweak it around to add in whatever you traded for and you're laughing...
