I dont think we can go after Suter or Weber without shedding salary, even with Carle gone.


Scott Hartnell ($4.200m) / Daniel Briere ($6.500m) / Jacob Voracek ($3.250m)
James Van Riemsdyk ($4.250m) / Claude Giroux ($3.750m) / Matt Read ($0.900m)
Wayne Simmonds ($1.750m) / Brayden Schenn ($3.110m) / Maxime Talbot ($1.750m)
Andreas Nodl ($0.845m) / Sean Couturier ($1.375m) / Zac Rinaldo ($0.544m)

Ryan Suter ($7.500m) / Chris Pronger ($4.921m)

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $68,000,000; CAP PAYROLL: $69,633,373; BONUSES: $3,555,000CAP SPACE (22-man roster): -$1,633,373

There you go. Voracek gets a raise to 3.25 mil (reasonable IMO). Suter signed at 7.5 mil (should be enough IMO). The cap will DEFINITELY go up at least 3 mil just from the new TV money so IMO 68 mil is rather conservative. We can slide up to 3.555 mil of bonuses giving us another 1.9 mil in "call-up/injury" money for during the season. We can do it and the only 2 current roster players it costs us are Jagr and Carle. I could handle replacing what we are currently icing in Jagr and Carle with Schenn and Suter.
