i think that weber and suter are the types of players that, if you have the opportunity to acquire them, you do what you need to do to fit them in. i don't think suter will get over 7, especially if you trade for his rights, and weber will probably get a similar deal to chara, with a 6.5-7.5 cap hit on a long term deal. i don't think that nashville will be able to resign both of them, regardless of the smoke and mirrors they've been using to convince people they will be able to, and i actually think suter will be the one let go, considering weber still has RFA status.

considering the cap will likely rise again, and a number that's been rumored to be in the ballpark is about 67 million, we could trade bobrovsky for picks, let carle walk and trade voracek for suter's rights, as voracek is still an RFA after this season, and we'd be looking at something like...

Scott Hartnell ($4.200m) / Claude Giroux ($3.750m) / Jaromir Jagr ($2.750m)
James Van Riemsdyk ($4.250m) / Daniel Briere ($6.500m) / Matt Read ($0.900m)
Wayne Simmonds ($1.750m) / Sean Couturier ($1.375m) / Brayden Schenn ($3.110m)
Andreas Nodl ($0.845m) / Maxime Talbot ($1.750m) / Zac Rinaldo ($0.544m)

Ryan Suter ($7.000m) / Chris Pronger ($4.921m)
Braydon Coburn ($4.500m) / Kimmo Timonen ($6.333m)
Andrej Meszaros ($4.000m) / Andreas Lilja ($0.737m)
Erik Gustafsson ($0.900m)

Ilya Bryzgalov ($5.666m) / Niko Hovinen ($0.950m)

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $67,000,000; CAP PAYROLL: $66,733,373; BONUSES: $2,805,000
CAP SPACE (21-man roster): $266,627

this would depend on if jagr resigns for a slightly lesser contract, of course.
also, im not really sure how Schenn's cap hit works for next season...
