Sa Cyred is right IMO, we won't have all 3 of Coburn, Meszaros and Carle on the team next year, I just can't see us doing it cap-wise. Coburn is already signed so he stays and Meszaros still has a contract after this year so unless he gets traded Carle will be let go for nothing. This is what I'd REALLY like to see happen:

Just before the draft, trade Meszaros + Bob + our 1st or both 2nd's to move up in the draft to around the #10 pick (probably over paying but I'd like one of the potential franchise dmen available in the 2012 draft class). Then resign Carle at about 4 mil (he'll most likely get a raise even if WE don't believe he has earned it ) and maybe Nabby as a backup for Bryz.

run with the following:


Matt Read ($0.900m) / Daniel Briere ($6.500m) / Scott Hartnell ($4.200m)
James Van Riemsdyk ($4.250m) / Claude Giroux ($3.750m) / Jake Voracek ($3.000m)
Harry Z ($1.100m) / Brayden Schenn ($3.110m) / Wayne Simmonds ($1.750m)
Zac Rinaldo ($0.544m) / Sean Couturier ($1.375m) / Maxime Talbot ($1.750m)
Andreas Nodl ($0.845m)

Matt Carle ($4.000m) / Chris Pronger ($4.921m)
Braydon Coburn ($4.500m) / Kimmo Timonen ($6.333m)
Erik Gustafsson ($0.900m) / Andreas Lilja ($0.737m)
Morgan Rielly ($0.900m) (1st rnd pick in 2012 )

Ilya Bryzgalov ($5.666m) / E Nabokov ($1.000m)

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $62,033,373; BONUSES: $5,355,000
CAP SPACE (22-man roster): $2,266,627

Bolded = players that we signed or resigned. RED = the player we took with the 10th OA in the 2012 draft. We'd also have about 7.5 mil in cap space + whatever the cap rises to add in dealine deal players or to bring back Jagr.

If Rielly looks really good we make Lilja the 7th dman. If not we send him back to juniors and bring up one of Marshall/MAB/Bartulis.
