How much are decent 1st and 2nd line wingers going to cost? An Average of $4mil ea?
If so, you now have $13.6mil left for 9 players - or an average of $1.5mil ea.

This is assuming that you go right to the salary cap and don't leave yourself any wiggle room. Let's say that you you leave $4.6mil as a "just in case" fund - that means your 3rd and 4th lines average $1mil ea, but decent 3rd line players are probably more like $1.5mil ea, so now you're down to $4.5mil for 6 players. They would all be at essentially minimum NHL salary.

Not a real pretty picture...
