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...
I believe, once they have a CBA in place you can push the bonuses into the next season and you don't have to include them in the current year.
So Bobrovsky would only count 900k, Couturier 925K, Schenn ~900k.
EDIT: I kind of get the sense that some of the moves they made this offseason were made with next offseason in mind. Also don't think Jagr will come back for less money. If anything, more teams will be interested since he's shown that he can still do it in the NHL.
