It wouldn't surprise me to see one player with decent salary ($3M or so) added. That way we can have 21 players up here.
Teams carry 23 players all the time. You don't want to be stuck having to make an emergency callup or play one man short if a guy has a freak injury or gets really sick before a game. Plus you usually have a guy or two nursing injuries but not on the IR. Those guys end up being the scratches a lot of times while the regular scratches are in the lineup.

They should be a shade over the cap with a full 23 man roster. I'm just only keeping the NHL proven guys on the big roster, rather than trying to guess who'll make it out of camp.
