CAPGEEK.COM CAP CALCULATOR

FORWARDS
Scott Hartnell ($4.200m) / Claude Giroux ($3.750m) / Jaromir Jagr ($3.300m)
JVR ($1.654m) / Daniel Briere ($6.500m) / Wayne Simmonds ($1.750m)
Matt Read ($0.900m) / Maxime Talbot ($1.750m) / Jakub Voracek ($2.250m)
Harry Zolnierczyk ($0.900m) / Sean Couturier ($1.375m) / Zac Rinaldo ($0.544m)
/ Brayden Schenn ($1.700m) / Jody Shelley ($1.100m)

DEFENSEMEN
Chris Pronger ($4.921m) / Matt Carle ($3.437m)
Kimmo Timonen ($6.333m) / Erik Gustafsson ($0.900m)
Coburn ($3.200m) / Andrej Meszaros ($4.000m)
/ Claimed Walker ($0.850m)

GOALTENDERS
Ilya Bryzgalov ($5.666m) / Sergei Bobrovsky ($1.750m)

BONUS OVERAGES FROM LAST YEAR ($1.402m)

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $64,135,039; BONUSES: $1,300,000
CAP SPACE (24-man roster): $164,961


So in order to have 7 defensemen (the 1 backup we usually like to have sitting in the presser) like usual, we'd need to trim some cap somewhere.

Ideally, that would be Shelley but Beef may be right... it could end up being Schenn.
Could be Zolnierczyk or Rinaldo that gets sent down as well. 13 forwards is enough, even if one of them is Shelley.

We'd need to add what Marshall, Bourdon, Wellwood and Holmstrom has cost towards the cap during their stays as well, though it won't make too much difference I believe.
