CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $63,785,595; BONUSES: $3,940,000
CAP SPACE (24-man roster): $514,405

What I love is, for all 4 lines, each winger will either hit well or become a beast on the puck.
As giddy as we all are about actual cap space, I wouldn't carry 24 players, and jam up too many prospects in the rafters eating hot dogs rather than taking regular shifts in Adirondack. Also, I'm more inclined to break up the vets. Giroux - Jagr is pretty exciting, especially with JvR throwing his weight around. The downside is the anti-defense line of Hartnell - Briere - Voracek, by accounts of Voracek's defensive misadventures in Columbus.
