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...
That's why it crushes Teams; (in the cap era) to give players like Drew/Gomez Seven million dollars and they don't produce enough.
Drew really has to pick it up with that salary. If Drew doesn't end the season around (10-15G 30-40A) He will really set this team back.
